 Member nameDescription
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkBinarySortSpecifies that sorts should be based on a characters numeric value instead of its alphabetical value. 
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkBinarySort2Performs a binary sort. 
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkIgnoreCaseSpecifies that SqlString comparisons must ignore case. 
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkIgnoreKanaTypeSpecifies that SqlString comparisons must ignore the Kana type. Kana type refers to Japanese hiragana and katakana characters that represent phonetic sounds in the Japanese language. Hiragana is used for native Japanese expressions and words, while katakana is used for words borrowed from other languages, such as "computer" or "Internet". A phonetic sound can be expressed in both hiragana and katakana. If this value is selected, the hiragana character for one sound is considered equal to the katakana character for the same sound. 
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkIgnoreNonSpaceSpecifies that SqlString comparisons must ignore nonspace combining characters, such as diacritics. The Unicode Standard defines combining characters as characters that are combined with base characters to produce a new character. Non-space combining characters do not use character space by themselves when rendered. For more information about non-space combining characters, see the Unicode Standard at http://www.unicode.org. 
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkIgnoreWidthSpecifies that SqlString comparisons must ignore the character width. For example, Japanese katakana characters can be written as full-width or half-width and, if this value is selected, the katakana characters written as full-width are considered equal to the same characters written in half-width. 
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkNoneSpecifies the default option settings for SqlString comparisons.
