Property Value

Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.AsymmetricKeyCollection
An AsymmetricKeyCollection object that represents all the asymmetric keys defined on the database.

Remarks

Specific asymmetric keys can be referenced by using this collection by specifying the name of the asymmetric key. To add a new asymmetric key to the collection, call the asymmetric key constructor AsymmetricKey.

Examples

'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server

'Reference the AdventureWorks database.
Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks")

'Display all the asymmetric keys on the database.
Dim ak As AsymmetricKey
For Each ak In db.AsymmetricKeys
   Console.WriteLine(ak.Name)
