Public Property FetchAll As Boolean
public bool FetchAll {get; set;}

Property Value

true, if the PgSqlDataReader object will request data from the server on execution ExecuteReader; otherwise false. The default value is true.


FetchAll property allows your application to reduce greatly size of used memory on processing big volume data. If set to true, memory will be allocated for all data returned by your SELECT. If FetchAll property is set to false, memory will be allocated only at most for hundred records and on retrieving next records previous rows will be rewritten.


The following example fills two ListBox by data from the PgSqlDataReader. This sample demonstrates ability to navigate through the PgSqlDataReader several times when FetchAll property set to true.

  foreach (IDataRecord rec in reader) {
  foreach (IDataRecord rec in reader) {
