This method is called when a component is initially added to the SSIS Designer surface, and prior to the New method. It is also called when a component is edited, but prior to the Edit method.

Cache the object reference received in the dtsComponentMetadata parameter and use it in the Edit method to make changes to your component as the user interacts with your user interface. Typically, you must also pass this object reference to any supporting classes that you may create, such as a form class, to implement editing functionality for a component.

The serviceProvider parameter provides access to the services of the SSIS Designer. The following list shows the available services in the SSIS Designer.




Used to determine whether the component was generated as part of a copy/paste or cut/paste operation.


Used to access existing and create new connections in the package.


Used to capture events from data flow components when you need to capture all the errors and warnings raised by the component instead of receiving only the last error or warning.


Used to access existing or to create new variables in the package.

These services provide component developers the ability to access and create objects in the package in which the component is loaded.

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
