Examples

The following example creates an OdbcConnection and displays the backend data source name.

public void CreateOdbcConnection()
{
    string connectionString = "Driver={SQL Native Client};Server=(local);Trusted_Connection=Yes;Database=AdventureWorks;";

    using (OdbcConnection connection = new OdbcConnection(connectionString))
    {
        connection.Open();
        Console.WriteLine("ServerVersion: " + connection.ServerVersion
            + "\nDatabase: " + connection.Database);

        // The connection is automatically closed at
        // the end of the Using block.
    }
}
Public Sub CreateOdbcConnection(connectionString As String)
       Using connection As New OdbcConnection(connectionString)
           With connection
               .Open()
               Console.WriteLine("ServerVersion: " & .ServerVersion _
                  & vbCrLf + "Database: " & .Database)
           End With
       End Using 
End Sub

Remarks

Retrieving the DataSource property is equivalent to calling the ODBC function SQLGetInfo with the InfoType parameter set to SQL_SERVER_NAME.
