Connections.Contains(Object) Connections.Contains(Object) Connections.Contains(Object) Method

Definition

Indicates whether the ConnectionManager items in the collection can be accessed by using indexing without throwing an exception.

public:
 bool Contains(System::Object ^ index);
public bool Contains (object index);
Public Function Contains (index As Object) As Boolean

Parameters

index
Object Object Object

The name, description, ID, or index to locate in the collection.

Returns

true if the collection can be accessed by using the syntax Connections[index]. If true, the collection can be accessed by name, description, or index. false if indexing cannot be used to retrieve items from the Connections collection.

Examples

The following code sample removes a newly-added ADO.NET connection manager from the collection. It then uses the Contains method to make sure that the connection manager is removed.
