ItemByID Method

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The ItemByID method extracts a member from a SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) container object such as the Databases collection, using a system-defined component identifier to uniquely identify the container member.

as Object


Expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.


Long integer that specifies a system-generated component identifier.

A reference to the object extracted

The ItemByID method is implemented for SQL-DMO collections containing objects exposing the ID property.
