In this overload first parameter is name of a collection, and second parameter is the array of restrictions to be applied when querying information. These restrictions specify which subset of the collection will be returned. The restrictions can include, for example, the database name (in this case, only collection elements belonging to this database will be returned) or the mask for the name of collection elements (only the elements satisfying this mask will be returned). The quantity and description of restrictions allowed for each metadata collection are represented in the table here. Their number can also be obtained from the return of the GetSchema() method. If the second parameter is null/Nothing, it is ignored.
Instead of specifying the metadata collection name as a string constant, you may use members of System.Data.DbMetaDataCollectionNames andDevart.Data.SQLite.SQLiteMetadataCollectionNames as the first GetSchema argument values. The members of these classes are the string fields, each field stores the corresponding metadata collection name. It is recommended to use these fields rather than manually input the collection names manually as the string constants because in case of using these fields, you will find misspellings at compile-time, and intellisense will show you all the available metadata collection names.
GetSchema Method Reference
The following table provides detailed information on metadata collections that can be retrieved using the GetSchema method, and restrictions that can be applied for them. When calling the GetSchema method, you can pass all or few arguments. In the latter case, some default values are assumed, if they were not specified explicitly. The default value of catalog restriction is "main" - the currently opened database.
