Sets the command text.

Use SQL.SetCommandText method to set the command text. Command text can also be set in SQL.NewCommand.

It's not necessary to set a command type explicitly, because it is defined automatically in terms of command text string. But if you still have any reason to do it, use one of the following values:
CmdUnknownCommand type is not defined. Library will detect command type automatically when needed.
CmdSQLStmtCommand is an SQL statement.
CmdSQLStmtRawCommand is an SQL statement that mustn't be interpreted by SQLAPI++.
CmdStoredProcCommand is a stored procedure or a function.

To get command type use SQL.CommandType method.

If the command is an SQL statement and it has parameters, a set of parameter objects creates implicitly.
