DtsContainer.Description Property

Gets or sets the description of the DtsContainer object.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS (in microsoft.sqlserver.manageddts.dll)
public string Description { get; set; }
/** @property */
public final String get_Description ()

/** @property */
public final void set_Description (String value)

public final function get Description () : String

public final function set Description (value : String)

Property Value

A String that contains the description given to the container.

The Package class implements the DtsContainer through its inheritance of the EventsProvider. The following code example creates a package, then displays and sets values inherited from DtsContainer.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;

namespace Microsoft.SqlServer.SSIS.Samples
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            // The package is the ExecuteProcess package sample 
            // that is installed with the SSIS samples.
            string pkg = @"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx";

            Application app = new Application();
            Package p1 = app.LoadPackage(pkg, null);

            // Show the properties inherited from DtsContainer.
            Console.WriteLine("CreationName:    {0}", p1.CreationName);
            Console.WriteLine("DebugMode:       {0}", p1.DebugMode);
            Console.WriteLine("DelayValidation: {0}", p1.DelayValidation);
            Console.WriteLine("Description:     {0}", p1.Description);
            Console.WriteLine("Disable:         {0}", p1.Disable);

            // Description is not set for this sample, so set it.
            p1.Description = "This is the Execute Process Package Sample";
            Console.WriteLine("Description after modification: {0}", p1.Description);

            Console.WriteLine();
        }
    }
}

Sample Output:

CreationName: MSDTS.Package.1

DebugMode: False

DelayValidation: True

Description:

Disable: False

Description after modification: This is the Execute Process Package Sample
