StateChangeEventArgs Class

Provides data for the state change event of a .NET Framework data provider.

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

Public NotInheritable Class StateChangeEventArgs _
	Inherits EventArgs
Dim instance As StateChangeEventArgs

The data is used by the StateChange property of the OleDbConnection and the StateChange property of the SqlConnection.

The following example shows how to use the StateChange event within the SqlConnection class.

' Handler for the OnStateChange event. 
Private Sub OnStateChange(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As StateChangeEventArgs)
End Sub 

Sub Main()
End Sub 

Private Sub FillDataSet()
    Dim connectionString As String = GetConnectionString()
    Dim queryString As String = _
        "SELECT ProductID, UnitPrice from dbo.Products;" 

    ' Create a DataAdapter. 
    Using dataAdapter As New SqlDataAdapter( _
        queryString, connectionString)

        ' Add the handlers. 
        AddHandler dataAdapter.SelectCommand.Connection.StateChange, _
            AddressOf OnStateChange

        ' Create a DataSet. 
        Dim dataSet As New DataSet()

        ' Fill the DataSet, which fires several StateChange events.
        dataAdapter.Fill(dataSet, 0, 5, "Table")
    End Using 
End Sub 

Private Sub PrintEventArgs(ByVal args As StateChangeEventArgs)
    Console.WriteLine("  OriginalState= {0} CurrentState= {1}", _
        args.OriginalState, args.CurrentState)
End Sub 

Private Function GetConnectionString() As String 
    ' To avoid storing the connection string in your code,   
    ' you can retrieve it from a configuration file. 
    Return "Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=Northwind;" _
       & "Integrated Security=true;" 
End Function
