OracleXmlQueryProperties Class

An OracleXmlQueryProperties object represents the XML properties used by the OracleCommand class when the XmlCommandType property is Query.

Class Inheritance

Object

  OracleXmlQueryProperties

Declaration

public sealed class OracleXmlQueryProperties : ICloneable

Thread Safety

All public static methods are thread-safe, although instance methods do not guarantee thread safety.

Remarks

OracleXmlQueryProperties can be accessed, and modified using the XmlQueryProperties property of the OracleCommand class. Each OracleCommand object has its own instance of the OracleXmlQueryProperties class in the XmlQueryProperties property.

Use the default constructor to get a new instance of the OracleXmlQueryProperties. Use the OracleXmlQueryProperties.Clone() method to get a copy of an OracleXmlQueryProperties instance.

Example

This example retrieves relational data as XML.

// C#
 
using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Data;
using System.Xml;
using System.Text;
using Oracle.DataAccess.Client;
 
class OracleXmlQueryPropertiesSample

  {
    int rows = 0;
    StreamReader sr = null;
 
    // Define the XSL document for doing the transform.
    string xslstr = "<?xml version='1.0'?>\n" +
      "<xsl:stylesheet version=\"1.0\"" +
