OpenLog Method

LogProviderBase.OpenLog Method ()


Called at the beginning of package execution to establish connections to external data sources.

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

public virtual void OpenLog()

This method is called at the beginning of package execution and prior to any execution events occurring. You should use this method to establish connections to external data sources and prepare to respond to calls to the Log method.

The following example demonstrates connecting to an external text file using the ConnectionManager specified in the ConfigString property. The connection variable was cached from the

InitializeLogProvider method.

public override void OpenLog()
    //    Get the ConnectionManager from the package's
    //    Connections collection.
    connectionManager cm = connections[ConfigString];
    //    AcquireConnection for a file ConnectionManager
    //    retrieves the path to the file.
    string path = (string)cm.AcquireConnection(null);
    //    Instantiate the stream writer, and writes the opening
    //    log entry.
    this.sw = new StreamWriter(path);
    sw.WriteLine("OpenLog: " + DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString());
