SqlConnectionStringBuilder(String) SqlConnectionStringBuilder(String) SqlConnectionStringBuilder(String) SqlConnectionStringBuilder(String)

Initializes a new instance of the SqlConnectionStringBuilder class. The provided connection string provides the data for the instance's internal connection information.

public:
 SqlConnectionStringBuilder(System::String ^ connectionString);
public SqlConnectionStringBuilder (string connectionString);
new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnectionStringBuilder : string -> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnectionStringBuilder
Public Sub New (connectionString As String)

Parameters

connectionString
String String String String

The basis for the object's internal connection information. Parsed into name/value pairs. Invalid key names raise KeyNotFoundException.

Exceptions

Invalid value within the connection string (specifically, when a Boolean or numeric value was expected but not supplied).

The supplied connectionString is not valid.

Examples

The following example supplies a simple SQL Server connection string in the SqlConnectionStringBuilder object's constructor, and then iterates through all the key/value pairs within the object. Note that the collection provides default values for each item. Also note that the SqlConnectionStringBuilder class converts synonyms for the well-known keys so that they are consistent with the well-known names.

Note

This example includes a password to demonstrate how SqlConnectionStringBuilder works with connection strings. In your applications, we recommend that you use Windows Authentication. If you must use a password, do not include a hard-coded password in your application.

        End Try
    End Sub

Remarks

The SqlConnectionStringBuilder class provides a fixed internal collection of key/value pairs. Even if you supply only a small subset of the possible connection string values in the constructor, the object always provides default values for each key/value pair. When the ConnectionString property of the object is retrieved, the string contains only key/value pairs in which the value is not the default value for the item.
