OdbcParameter Constructor (String, Object)

Initializes a new instance of the OdbcParameter class that uses the parameter name and an OdbcParameter object.

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

public OdbcParameter(
	string name,
	Object value


Type: System.String

The name of the parameter.

Type: System.Object

An OdbcParameter object.

When you specify an Object in the value parameter, the DbType is not inferred from the Microsoft .NET Framework type of the Object, NVarChar is used.

Use caution when you are using this overload of the OdbcParameter constructor to specify integer parameter values. Because this overload takes a value of type Object, you must convert the integral value to an Object type when the value is zero, as the following C# example demonstrates.

Parameter = new OdbcParameter("@pname", Convert.ToInt32(0));

If you do not perform this conversion, the compiler assumes that you are trying to call the OdbcParameter.OdbcParameter constructor overload.
