Property Value


The inner, provider-specific connection string.


The provider-specific connection string is not checked for valid keyword/value pairs before it is set. Developers can create connection strings by using either a strongly typed connection string builder class, or they can use the DbConnectionStringBuilder class. The DbConnectionStringBuilder performs no checks for valid keyword/value pairs. Therefore, it is possible using this class to create invalid connection strings.

For valid keyword/value syntax, see ConnectionString.
