SqlDataReader.FieldCount Property

Gets the number of columns in the current row.

Namespace: System.Data.SqlClient
Assembly: System.Data (in system.data.dll)

public override int FieldCount { get; 
/** @property */
public int get_FieldCount ()

public override function get FieldCount () : int

Property Value

When not positioned in a valid recordset, 0; otherwise the number of columns in the current row. The default is -1.

Exception typeCondition

NotSupportedException

There is no current connection to an instance of SQL Server.

Executing a query that, by its nature, does not return rows (such as a DELETE query), sets FieldCount to 0. However. this should not be confused with a query that returns 0 rows (such as SELECT * FROM table WHERE 1 = 2) in which case FieldCount returns the number of columns in the table.
