    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    
    Property ConnectionType As ConnectionTypeOption
    'Usage
     
    
    Dim instance As ITerminal
    Dim value As ConnectionTypeOption
     
    instance.ConnectionType = value
     
    value = instance.ConnectionType
    ConnectionTypeOption ConnectionType {get; set;}

    Property Value

    The default value is "BEST-NETWORK".
    Remarks
    When you use this property to set a connection type, all connection settings for that type (that is, all settings you can configure with the ConnectionSettings property) are reset to their default values.

    If you're writing a procedure that manipulates the current data connection settings, you may want to determine the current connection type with this property before making changes to the connection settings. After determining the current connection type, you can use the ConnectionSetting method to retrieve the value of a single connection keyword token, or the ConnectionSettings property to retrieve or set any or all of the connection keyword tokens.

    If a connection is already active and you try to set the connection type, a runtime error results. You should either trap the error with an error-handing routine, or use the IsConnected property to first determine if a connection is active.
