ExecuteTable(String, String) method

UL Ext.: Retrieves in a ULTable a database table for direct manipulation. The table is opened (sorted) using the specified index.


Visual Basic

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


public ULTable ExecuteTable(
string tableName,
string indexName

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 index named MyIndex. It assumes an open ULConnection instance called conn.

' Visual Basic
Dim t As ULTable = conn.ExecuteTable("MyTable", "MyIndex")
' The line above is equivalent to
' Dim cmd As ULCommand = conn.CreateCommand()
' cmd.CommandText = "MyTable"
' cmd.IndexName = "MyIndex"
' cmd.CommandType = CommandType.TableDirect
' Dim t As ULTable = cmd.ExecuteTable()
' cmd.Dispose()

// C#
ULTable t = conn.ExecuteTable("MyTable", "MyIndex");
// The line above is equivalent to
// ULTable t;
// using(ULCommand cmd = conn.CreateCommand())
// {
//     cmd.CommandText = "MyTable";
//     cmd.IndexName = "MyIndex";
//     cmd.CommandType = CommandType.TableDirect;
//     t = cmd.ExecuteTable();
// }
