I have defined a SqlDataSource in my .aspx page this way:

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"
                            ConnectionString="<%$ appSettings:MyConnectString %>"
                            ProviderName= "System.Data.OracleClient"
                            <asp:Parameter Name="resultCursor" Direction="Output" />

I use the above in the DropDownList in the same .aspx page:

                                    <asp:DropDownList ID="dd1" runat="server"
                                        DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" DataTextField="F1"

In the corresponding .cs page:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.OracleClient; //can I get rid of this...?
        protected void SqlDataSource1_Selecting(object sender, SqlDataSourceSelectingEventArgs e)
            ((System.Data.OracleClient.OracleParameter)e.Command.Parameters[0]).OracleType =

Is it possible for me to get rid of this line:
using System.Data.OracleClient;
in the above .cs page?

Although everything works above, I need to look for a way to get rid of "using System.Data.OracleClient; " from the .cs page.
But if I do so, the line under SqlDataSource1_Selecting does not compile.

Will be helpful if you could suggest something.
Thanks a lot.
