    Close Method (DbConnectionBase)
    In This Topic
    Closes the connection to the database. This is the preferred method of closing any open connection.
    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.
