Updated text: 17 July 2006
The Create method creates the database on the instance of SQL Server. You can create a Database object variable and set properties, but the database is not created on the instance of SQL Server until the Create method is called.
This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.
'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server. Dim srv As Server srv = New Server 'Define a Database object variable by supplying the server and the database name arguments in the constructor. Dim db As Database db = New Database(srv, "Test_SMO_Database") 'Create the database on the instance of SQL Server. db.Create() 'Reference the database and display the date when it was created. db = srv.Databases("Test_SMO_Database") Console.WriteLine(db.CreateDate) 'Remove the database. db.Drop()
