Drop-in replacement for MySQLConnector/Net

Drop-in replacement for MySQLConnector/Net

Postby Qodex » Sun 30 Mar 2014 15:56

More of a comment than a question. I just switched from Connector/Net to dotConnector. It was ALMOST a drop-in replacement. Odd that these two fields have different names:

Connector/Net:

MySqlConnectionStringBuilder.Server
MySqlConnectionStringBuilder.UserID

dotConnector:

MySqlConnectionStringBuilder.Host
MySqlConnectionStringBuilder.UserId

Yes, you are right the names of these properties are different for dotConnect for MySQL and MySQL Connector/Net.

We will investigate the possibility to add Server and UserID properties to MySqlConnectionStringBuilder class for compatibility with MySQL Connector/Net.

We have added the Server and UserID properties to the MySqlConnectionStringBuilder class for compatibility with MySQL Connector/Net. We will post here when the corresponding build of dotConnect for MySQL is available for download.

We have to remove the UserID property from the MySqlConnectionStringBuilder class for compatibility with Visual Basic, because having UserID and UserId properties at the same time caused conflicts in Visual Basic.

Thus, the UserID property is available only in dotConnect for MySQL 8.3.181 and 8.3.191.
