Represents an open connection to a data source, and is implemented by SQL Server Reporting Services data processing extensions that access relational databases.
Assemblies: Microsoft.ReportingServices.Interfaces (in Microsoft.ReportingServices.Interfaces.dll)
Microsoft.ReportingServices.SharePoint.UI.WebParts (in Microsoft.ReportingServices.SharePoint.UI.WebParts.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|ConnectionString||Gets or sets the string used to open a database.|
|ConnectionTimeout||Gets the time to wait, while trying to establish a connection, before terminating the attempt and generating an error.|
|LocalizedName||Gets the localized name of the extension to be displayed in a user interface. (Inherited from IExtension.)|
|BeginTransaction||Begins a database transaction.|
|Close||Closes the connection to the database.|
|CreateCommand||Creates and returns a Command object associated with the connection.|
|Dispose||(Inherited from IDisposable.)|
|Open||Initializes a database connection with the settings specified by the ConnectionString property of the provider-specific Connection object.|
|SetConfiguration||Used to pass custom configuration data to an extension. (Inherited from IExtension.)|
The interface enables you to implement a Connection class, which represents a unique session with a data source. The interface can be used to build a custom data provider. For more information about Connection classes, see Implementing a Connection Class for a Data Processing Extension.
An application does not create an instance of the interface directly, but creates an instance of a class that implements .
Classes that implement must implement all required members, and typically define additional members to add provider-specific functionality. Because inherits from IExtension, you must also implement the IExtension members as part of your Connection class.
When you implement from the interface, you should also implement the following constructors:
Initializes a new instance of the PrvConnection class.
Initializes a new instance of the PrvConnection class when given a string containing the connection string.
