SqlString Structure

Represents a variable-length stream of characters to be stored in or retrieved from the database.

For a list of all members of this type, see SqlString Members.


[Visual Basic]
Public Structure SqlString
   Implements INullable, IComparable
public struct SqlString : INullable, IComparable
public __value struct SqlString : public INullable, IComparable

[JScript] In JScript, you can use the structures in the .NET Framework, but you cannot define your own.

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.


When using SqlString comparison operators, note that if the LCIDs of arguments are different, comparison functions throw an exception because they cannot be compared. For example, the statement

SqlString mySqlString = new SqlString(abc);

is equivalent to

SqlString mySqlString = new SqlString(abc, CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.LCID);
