this is a part of Document :
"The following options are available:

Using the '@' symbol for parameters is now the preferred approach although the old pattern of using '?' is still supported.

Please be aware however that using '@' can cause conflicts when user variables are also used. To help with this situation<b>please see the documentation on the Allow User Variables connection string option, which can be found here: Section, “Creating a Connection String”</b>. The Old Syntax connection string option has now been deprecated."
look at the Bold part!
in this document mentioned about "Allow User Variables connection string option" but there is no sign of it in the Section, “Creating a Connection String”.

How to repeat:
look at this page :http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/connector-net-programming-connecting-connection-str...

Suggested fix:
add "Allow User Variables connection string option" explanation !

Thank you for the documentation request.

This must have been fixed in the past, as it does link to a section describing the "Allow User Variables" feature.
