public:
 property bool VariableLength { bool get(); };

Property Value

A Boolean value that specifies whether the user-defined data type is variable in length.

If True, the user-defined data type represents a data type that can vary in length, such as varchar(4).

If False (default), the user-defined data type represents a data type that cannot vary in length, such as char(4).

A 2-character value retrieved from a user-defined data type defined as varchar(4) is returned as 2 characters. However, the same value retrieved from a user-defined data type defined as char(4) is padded and returned as 4 characters.
