Devart.Common Namespace > DbConnectionBase Class : Close Method

Closes the connection to the database. This is the preferred method of closing any open connection.


Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public Overrides Sub Close() 
public override void Close()


The Close method rolls back any pending transactions. It then releases the connection to the connection pool, or closes the connection if connection pooling is disabled.

Note that you must manually close all connections opened by the application. If a DbConnectionBase goes out of scope, it is not closed automatically till the application shuts down.

An application can call Close more than one time without generating an exception.


Platforms:Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003 family, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 family, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012 family.
