    OracleScript Class
    In This Topic
    Serves to execute series of SQL statements separated by special symbols, like SQL*Plus scripts.
    Public Class OracleScript 
       Inherits Devart.Common.DbScript
       Implements System.ComponentModel.IComponentSystem.IDisposable 

    Often it is necessary to execute several SQL statements one by one. Sometimes it can be performed by anonymous PL/SQL block. But unfortunately it doesn't work always. For example DDL statements cannot be used in PL/SQL. Another way is using a lot of components such as OracleCommand. Usually it isn't a good solution. With only one OracleScript component you can execute several SQL statements as one. This sequence of statements is named script. To separate single statements use semicolon (;) or slash (/) symbols and for PL/SQL only slash. Note: Slash must be the first character in the line.

    If you are SQL*Plus user or need to execute scripts written for SQL*Plus with OracleScript, you may find some useful hints in the OracleScript Hints for SQL*Plus Users article.

    Following example executes a script and handles script errors.
    public void ExecuteScript(string sql, OracleConnection conn) {
            OracleScript script = new OracleScript(sql, conn);
            script.Error += new ScriptErrorEventHandler(this.OnError);
    public void OnError(object sender, Devart.Common.ScriptErrorEventArgs e) {
            e.Ignore = true;
    Public Sub ExecuteScript(ByVal Sql As String, ByVal conn As OracleConnection)
            Dim Script As OracleScript = New OracleScript(Sql, conn)
            AddHandler Script.Error, AddressOf OnError
    End Sub
    Public Sub OnError(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As Devart.Common.ScriptErrorEventArgs)
            e.Ignore = True
    End Sub
