SqlParameter.Offset Property

Gets or sets the offset to the Value property.

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

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public int Offset { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The offset to the Value. The default is 0.

The Offset property is used for client-side chunking of binary and string data. For example, in order to insert 10MB of text into a column on a server, a user might execute 10 parameterized inserts of 1MB chunks, shifting the value of Offset on each iteration by 1MB.

Offset specifies the number of bytes for binary types, and the number of characters for strings. The count for strings does not include the terminating character.

The following example creates a SqlParameter and sets some of its properties.

static void CreateSqlParameterOffset()
{
    SqlParameter parameter = new SqlParameter("pDName", SqlDbType.VarChar);
    parameter.IsNullable = true;
    parameter.Offset = 3;
}
