ConnectionManager Members

Provides the information that you must have to connect to a data source. All classes that inherit from the ConnectionManager contain the same properties and methods. The ConnectionManager class isolates the implementation details of the different connection types from the runtime. This enables the runtime to interact with each connection manager in a consistent and predictable manner. Connection managers contain a set of stock properties that all connections have in common, such as the Name, ID, Description, and ConnectionString. However, each connection type has additional properties that are specific to that connection type. These can be accessed through the Properties collection.This class cannot be inherited.

The following tables list the members exposed by the ConnectionManager type.

  Name Description
ms211905.pubproperty(en-US,SQL.90).gif ConnectionString Gets or sets the connection string used to establish a connection to a data source.
ms211905.pubproperty(en-US,SQL.90).gif CreationName Returns the string that is used by the runtime to create an instance of the ConnectionManager object and to add the object to the Connections collection. This property is read-only.
ms211905.pubproperty(en-US,SQL.90).gif DelayValidation Gets or sets a Boolean that indicates whether package validation is delayed until the package runs.
ms211905.pubproperty(en-US,SQL.90).gif Description Gets or sets the description of the ConnectionManager object.
ms211905.pubproperty(en-US,SQL.90).gif HostType Gets an enumeration that describes the type of host that the connection is being used by. This property is read-only.
ms211905.pubproperty(en-US,SQL.90).gif ID Gets the ID of the ConnectionManager. This property is read-only.
ms211905.pubproperty(en-US,SQL.90).gif InnerObject Returns the specific connection type that was created. This property is read-only.
ms211905.pubproperty(en-US,SQL.90).gif Name Gets or sets the name of the ConnectionManager object.
ms211905.pubproperty(en-US,SQL.90).gif Properties Gets a collection of property objects for the ConnectionManager. This is the method of accessing the properties of the specific connection that is being hosted by the connection manager. This property is read-only.
ms211905.pubproperty(en-US,SQL.90).gif ProtectionLevel Gets or sets the level of encryption performed on sensitive data that is contained in the package.
