Used to connect to MS SQL Server databases.
In order to use this class, you must have the MSSQServerDatabase plug-in in your plugins folder. The plug-in is included in the installation.
When the plug-in is installed, this class becomes available and you can also added a MS SQL Server database connection directly to the project.
This plug-in is a Windows-only feature. Other platforms will get a PlatformNotSupportedException when any method is called.
Multiple result sets are not supported. If your query returns multiple results sets you will only get back the first result set.
To connect to a local MS SQL Server database:
Var db As New MSSQLServerDatabase
db.Host = "192.168.0.1\InstanceName" // or just the IP if using the default instance
db.DatabaseName = "NorthWind"
db.UserName = "MyUserID" // or "Domain\UserID for trusted domain accounts
db.Password = "mypassword"
Catch error As DatabaseException
MessageBox("The database connection was unsuccessful.")
