Public Property DbType As DbType

Property Value


The database type of the Parameter instance. The default value is Object.


An attempt was made to set this property to a value that is not in the DbType enumeration.


The database type can be used to create strongly typed parameters, so that values are converted correctly between your Web application and underlying code or values from database tables.

If the database type of the parameter is changed by setting the DbType property, the OnParameterChanged method is called.
