LoadProperties Method

ReplicationObject.LoadProperties Method

Loads the properties of an existing object from the server.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in microsoft.sqlserver.rmo.dll)

public bool LoadProperties ()
public boolean LoadProperties ()
public function LoadProperties () : boolean

Return Value

A Boolean value. If true, the object exists on the instance of Microsoft SQL Server. If false, the object does not exist on the instance of SQL Server.

If properties have already been loaded, they will not be reloaded. If they are not current, call the Refresh method on the object to refresh the properties.

If sufficient information about this object is missing, an exception is raised. If the object does not exist on the server, the method returns false. Otherwise, properties are loaded and the method returns true.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the .NET Framework.

// Define the server, database, and publication names
string publisherName = publisherInstance;
string publicationName = "AdvWorksSalesOrdersMerge";
string publicationDbName = "AdventureWorks";

MergePublication publication;

// Create a connection to the Publisher.
ServerConnection conn = new ServerConnection(publisherName);

    // Connect to the Publisher.

    // Set the required properties for the publication.
    publication = new MergePublication();
    publication.ConnectionContext = conn;
    publication.Name = publicationName;
    publication.DatabaseName = publicationDbName;

    // If we can't get the properties for this merge publication, then throw an application exception.
    if (publication.LoadProperties())
        // If DDL replication is currently enabled, disable it.
        if (publication.ReplicateDdl == DdlReplicationOptions.All)
            publication.ReplicateDdl = DdlReplicationOptions.None;
            publication.ReplicateDdl = DdlReplicationOptions.All;
        throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
            "Settings could not be retrieved for the publication. " +
            "Ensure that the publication {0} exists on {1}.",
            publicationName, publisherName));
catch (Exception ex)
    // Do error handling here.
    throw new ApplicationException(
        "The publication property could not be changed.", ex);
