class Program {
   public static void Main() {
      SqlConnectionStringBuilder builder = new SqlConnectionStringBuilder();

      builder["Password"] = null;
      string aa = builder.Password;
      Console.WriteLine(aa.Length);

      builder["Password"] = "??????";
      aa = builder.Password;
      Console.WriteLine(aa.Length);

      try {
         builder.Password = null;
      }
      catch (ArgumentNullException e) {
         Console.WriteLine("{0}", e);
      }
   }
}
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Public Class Program
   Public Shared Sub Main()

      Dim builder As New SqlConnectionStringBuilder()

      builder("Password") = Nothing
      Dim aa As String = builder.Password
      Console.WriteLine(aa.Length)

      builder("Password") = "??????"
      aa = builder.Password
      Console.WriteLine(aa.Length)

      Try
         builder.Password = Nothing
      Catch e As ArgumentNullException
         Console.WriteLine("{0}", e)
      End Try
   End Sub
End Class

Remarks

This property corresponds to the "Password" and "pwd" keys within the connection string.

If Password has not been set and you retrieve the value, the return value is Empty. To reset the password for the connection string, pass null to the Item property.
