Method DacSession():getConnectionHandle() Professional

Retrieves the connection handle.

:getConnectionHandle( [<cDSName>] ) --> nHandle
A character string with the data source name of a connection must be specified when the DacSession object manages a compound session connected to multiple data sources. The parameter is ignored when the object maintains only a single connection.

The method returns a numeric value which is the connection handle to a data source.


The connection handle cannot be used on the Xbase++ language-level. It is necessary for calling operating system API functions which require the connection handle as a parameter.
