Notes

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.

The MSSQLServerDatabase engine supports only the MoveNext RecordSet navigation method.

Multiple result sets are not supported. If your query returns multiple results sets you will only get back the first result set.

Threading

SelectSQL and ExecuteSQL statements do not block when called from within Threads.

Sample Code

To connect to a local MS SQL Server database:

Try
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"
db.Connect
Catch error as DatabaseException
Beep
MessageBox("The database connection was unsuccessful.")
End Try
