Displays information about the named connections in the current database.
DISPLAY CONNECTIONS [TO PRINTER [PROMPT] | TO FILE FileName [ADDITIVE]] [NOCONSOLE]
- TO PRINTER [PROMPT]
- Directs output from DISPLAY CONNECTIONS to a printer. In Visual FoxPro, you can include the optional PROMPT clause to display a Print dialog box before printing starts. Place PROMPT immediately after TO PRINTER.
- TO FILE FileName
- Directs output from DISPLAY CONNECTIONS to the file specified with FileName. If the file already exists and SET SAFETY is ON, Visual FoxPro displays a prompt asking if you want to overwrite the file.
- Appends to the end of the named file. If you omit ADDITIVE, then the file is overwritten with the value of the expression.
- Suppresses output to the main Visual FoxPro window or to the active user-defined window.
DISPLAY CONNECTIONS displays the connection names, datasource, and connection string in the current database. Use DBGETPROP(В ) to return additional information about connections in the current database.
The following example assumes an ODBC data source called MyFoxSQLNT is available. The
testdata database is opened, and a connection named
Myconn is created. DISPLAY CONNECTIONS is used to display the named connections in the database.
CLOSE DATABASES OPEN DATABASE (HOME(2) + 'data\testdata') CREATE CONNECTION Myconn DATASOURCE "MyFoxSQLNT" USERID "<userid>" PASSWORD "<password>" CLEAR DISPLAY CONNECTIONS && Displays named connections in the database
