The following code example how to override the ConnectionString property for a custom connection manager, and shows a sample of what code may be in this property. Your code will vary.

        get{return myConnectionString;}  
            myConnectionString = value;  
            myServer = myConnectionString;  
            if(null != myServer && "" != myServer)  
                    mySmtpServer = myServer;  
Public Overrides Property ConnectionString() As String  
            Return myConnectionString  
    End Get  
    Set (ByVal Value As String)   
            myConnectionString = value  
            myServer = myConnectionString  
            If Nothing <> myServer And "" <> myServer Then  
                    mySmtpServer = myServer  
            End If  
    End Set  
End Property  


The format and contents of the connection string depend upon the data provider and the data source as well as the type of connection manager that is being created. To view a sample connection string, create a connection manager of the appropriate type in a package in SQL Server Data Tools and examine its ConnectionString property in the Properties window.
