Type: BerkeleyDB..::.DatabaseEntry
The key to search for
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 retrieved 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.
