Retrieve a key/data pair from the database. In the presence of duplicate key values, Get will return the first data item for key. If the data is a partial DatabaseEntry, PartialLen bytes starting PartialOffset bytes from the beginning of the retrieved data record are returned as if they comprise the entire record. If any or all of the specified bytes do not exist in the record, Get is successful, and any existing bytes are returned.

Type: BerkeleyDB..::.DatabaseEntry
The key to search for
Type: BerkeleyDB..::.DatabaseEntry
The retrieved data
Type: BerkeleyDB..::.Transaction
txn is a Transaction object returned from BeginTransaction()()(); if the operation is part of a Berkeley DB Concurrent Data Store group, txn is a handle returned from BeginCDSGroup()()(); otherwise null.
Type: BerkeleyDB..::.LockingInfo
The locking behavior to use.

Return Value

A KeyValuePair<(Of <(TKey, TValue>)>) whose Key parameter is key and whose Value parameter is the partially retrieved bytes in the data.


If txn is null and the operation occurs in a transactional database, the operation will be implicitly transaction protected.


BerkeleyDB..::.NotFoundException A NotFoundException is thrown if key is not in the database.
BerkeleyDB..::.KeyEmptyException A KeyEmptyException is thrown if the database is a QueueDatabase or RecnoDatabase database and key exists, but was never explicitly created by the application or was later deleted.
