Session.Connection Property

Gets or sets an IDbConnection object associated with the session.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpo

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpo.v20.1.dll


public IDbConnection Connection { get; set; }
Public Property Connection As IDbConnection

Property Value

Type Default Description


An object which implements the IDbConnection interface.


Use the OleDbConnection to access an MS Access database and the SqlConnection to access an MS SQL Server database.

Setting the Connection property throws the CannotChangePropertyWhenSessionIsConnectedException if the session is already connected to a database. Otherwise, it resets the Session.ConnectionString property's value.

The Connection property returns null (Nothing in VB) if the pooled database connection with the Cached Data Store and Object Access Layer (SessionObjectLayer or SerializableObjectLayerClient) is used.
