OdbcError OdbcError OdbcError OdbcError Class


Collects information relevant to a warning or error returned by the data source.

public ref class OdbcError sealed
public sealed class OdbcError
type OdbcError = class
Public NotInheritable Class OdbcError


The following example displays the properties of the OdbcError class.

public void DisplayOdbcErrorCollection(OdbcException exception)
	for (int i = 0; i < exception.Errors.Count; i++)
		Console.WriteLine("Index #" + i + "\n" +
			"Message: " + exception.Errors[i].Message + "\n" +
			"Native: " + exception.Errors[i].NativeError.ToString() + "\n" +
			"Source: " + exception.Errors[i].Source + "\n" +
			"SQL: " + exception.Errors[i].SQLState + "\n");
Public Sub DisplayOdbcErrorCollection(ByVal exception As OdbcException)
    Dim i As Integer

    For i = 0 To exception.Errors.Count - 1
        Console.WriteLine("Index #" & i.ToString() & ControlChars.Cr _
           & "Message: " & exception.Errors(i).Message & ControlChars.Cr _
           & "Native: " & exception.Errors(i).NativeError.ToString() & ControlChars.Cr _
           & "Source: " & exception.Errors(i).Source & ControlChars.Cr _
           & "SQL: " & exception.Errors(i).SQLState & ControlChars.Cr)
    Next i
End Sub


This class is created by the OdbcDataAdapter whenever an error occurs. Each instance of OdbcError created by the OdbcDataAdapter is then managed by the OdbcErrorCollection class, which in turn is created by the OdbcException class.

If the severity of the error is too great, the server may close the OdbcConnection. However, the user can reopen the connection and continue.
