COMPRESS function [String] Next Page


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


{ property-id | property-name }
[, property-specific-argument ]


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.


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.
