ExecuteTable(String) method

UL Ext.: Retrieves in a ULTable a database table for direct manipulation. The table is opened (sorted) using the table's primary key.

Visual Basic

Public Function ExecuteTable( _
   ByVal tableName As String _
) As ULTable

public ULTable ExecuteTable(
   string  tableName
  • tableName¬†¬† The name of the table to open.

Return value

The table as a ULTable object.


This method is a shortcut for the ULCommand.ExecuteTable() method that does not require a ULCommand instance. It is provided to help users porting from earlier versions of UltraLite.NET (it replaces iAnywhere.UltraLite.Connection.GetTable() and iAnywhere.UltraLite.Table.Open()).


The following code opens the table named MyTable using the table's primary key. It assumes an open ULConnection instance called conn.

' Visual Basic
Dim t As ULTable = conn.ExecuteTable("MyTable")
' The line above is equivalent to
' Dim cmd As ULCommand = conn.CreateCommand()
' cmd.CommandText = "MyTable"
' cmd.CommandType = CommandType.TableDirect
' Dim t As ULTable = cmd.ExecuteTable()
' cmd.Dispose()
// C#
ULTable t = conn.ExecuteTable("MyTable");
// The line above is equivalent to
// ULTable t;
// using(ULCommand cmd = conn.CreateCommand())
// {
//     cmd.CommandText = "MyTable";
//     cmd.CommandType = CommandType.TableDirect;
//     t = cmd.ExecuteTable();
// }
