CONNECTION_EXTENDED_PROPERTY function [String]

Returns the value of the given property. Allows an optional property-specific string parameter to be specified.

Syntax
CONNECTION_EXTENDED_PROPERTY( 
{ property-id | property-name }
[, property-specific-argument ]
)
Parameters
  • property-id   The connection property ID.

  • property-name   The connection property name. Possible property names are CharSet and NcharCharSet.

  • property-specific-argument   Optional property-specific string parameter associated with the following connection properties.

    • CharSet   Returns the CHAR character set label for the connection as it is known by the specified standard. The possible values include: ASE, IANA, MIME, JAVA, WINDOWS, UTR22, IBM, and ICU. The default is IANA unless the database connection was made through TDS in which case ASE is the default.

    • NcharCharSet   Returns the NCHAR character set label for the connection as it is known by the specified standard. The possible values are the same as listed above for CharSet.

Remarks

The CONNECTION_EXTENDED_PROPERTY function returns extended connection properties. The returned value is a LONG VARCHAR, and applies to the current connection.

The CONNECTION_EXTENDED_PROPERTY function is similar to the CONNECTION_PROPERTY function except that it allows an optional property-specific string parameter to be specified. The interpretation of the property-specific argument depends on the property ID or name specified in the first argument.

You can use the CONNECTION_EXTENDED_PROPERTY function to return the value for any connection property. However, extended information is only available for the extended properties.
