XAF0013: Avoid reading the XafApplication.ConnectionString property

Severity: Error

When you get the XafApplication.ConnectionString property value, XAF removes all sensitive information (like login and password) from the property value.

Examples

Invalid Code

using DevExpress.ExpressApp;

namespace MySolution.Module.BusinessObjects{ 
    public class TestClass  : BaseObject {
        public void TestMethod(XafApplication xafApplication) {
            // Avoid reading the XafApplication.ConnectionString property
            //string connectionString = xafApplication.ConnectionString;
        }
    }
}
