How do I retrieve Entity Framework's provider-specific ConnectionString?

.net ado.net connection-string entity-framework

Question

using ado.net tipically we need to define a connectionstring to create a sqlconnection object, and if we use the entity framework, we have to dedine a connectionstring too.

is threre any way to get the specific provider connectionstring used by entity framework?

Assuming that originally on ado.net we define the CS like:

"Data Source=myServerAddress;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;"

and Entityframework should translate their CS format on something like that, is it possible to obtain this?

what i pretend is to know if is possible to get the specific provider connectionstring generated by EF?

How can i convert a entityframework connectionstring on a sqlserver connectionstring?
