Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS (in Microsoft.SqlServer.ManagedDTS.dll)

public bool Contains(
	Object index
)

Parameters

index
Type: Object
The name, ID, description, or index of the variable to locate in the collection.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
A Boolean that indicates whether the collection can be accessed by using indexing. A value of true indicates that the collection can be accessed by using the syntax Variables[index].If the Contains method returns false, this property will throw an exception. In C#, this property is the indexer for the Variables class.

The following code example adds a variable to the package. The code example uses various methods to locate the variable and print out its name, value, and namespace.

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

namespace Adding_Variables
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Application app = new Application();
            Package pkg = app.LoadPackage(@"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\CalculatedColumns Sample\CalculatedColumns\CalculatedColumns.dtsx", null);
            Variables pkgVars = pkg.Variables;
            Variable myVar = pkg.Variables.Add("myCustomVar", false, "User", "3");

            // Verify whether the variable is in the collection now.
            Boolean hasMyVar = pkg.Variables.Contains("myCustomVar");
            Console.WriteLine("The variable was found? {0}", hasMyVar);

            // Loop over the collection using the foreach keyword.
            foreach (Variable pkgVar in pkgVars)
            {
                // Print variables only from the User namespace.
                if (pkgVar.Namespace == "User")
                {
                Console.WriteLine("Variable: {0}, {1}", pkgVar.Name, pkgVar.Value.ToString());
                 }
            }
            Console.WriteLine("---------------------------");
            // Loop over the collection using the Enumerator. 
            VariableEnumerator myEnum = pkg.Variables.GetEnumerator();
            int i = 0;
            while ((myEnum.MoveNext()) && (myEnum.Current != null))
                // Again, show variables only from the User namespace.
                if (myEnum.Current.Namespace == "User")
                {                
                    Console.WriteLine("[{0}] {1}, {2}", i++, myEnum.Current.Name, myEnum.Current.Namespace);
                }

            myEnum.Reset();
            Console.WriteLine("---------------------------");

            //Using the Item method syntax of [x], obtain the
            // first entry in the collection.
            myVar = pkgVars[0];
            Console.WriteLine("The name and namespace of the first variable is: {0}, {1}", myVar.Name, myVar.Namespace);
            String nameOfFirstItem = pkgVars[0].Name;
            Console.WriteLine("The name of the first variable is: {0}", nameOfFirstItem);
            //}
        }
    }
}

Sample Output:

The variable was found? True

Variable: myCustomVar, 3

---------------------------

[0] myCustomVar, User

---------------------------

The name and namespace of the first variable is: CancelEvent, System

The name of the first variable is: CancelEvent
