ConnectionManager.InnerObject Property

Returns the specific connection type that was created. This property is read-only.

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

public Object InnerObject { get; }
/** @property */
public final Object get_InnerObject ()

public final function get InnerObject () : Object

Property Value

The object that contains the hosted item. This object is cast to the class that matches the connection type. Except for the connections found in Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.ManagedConnections, these connection objects are native and must be cast to their native class. This is shown by the InnerObject displaying a value of "System.__ComObject" from the code example.

The following code example loads an existing package that has two connections. It iterates through the connection managers in the package and prints out the values for various properties, including the InnerObject.

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

namespace Connections_Collection
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
           // The package is one of the SSIS Samples.
            string mySample = @"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\CalculatedColumns Sample\CalculatedColumns\CalculatedColumns.dtsx";
            // Create an application and load the sample.
            Application app = new Application();
            Package pkg = app.LoadPackage(mySample, null);
            Connections myConns = pkg.Connections;
            int connCount = myConns.Count;
            Console.WriteLine("The number of connections in the package is: {0}", connCount);
            // Enumerate over the collection, printing out
            // the values for various properties.
            foreach (ConnectionManager connMgr in myConns)
                Console.WriteLine("ConnectionString:        {0}", connMgr.ConnectionString);
                Console.WriteLine("CreationName:            {0}", connMgr.CreationName);
                Console.WriteLine("DelayValidation:         {0}", connMgr.DelayValidation);
                Console.WriteLine("Description:             {0}", connMgr.Description);
                Console.WriteLine("HostType:                {0}", connMgr.HostType);
                Console.WriteLine("ID:                      {0}", connMgr.ID);
                Console.WriteLine("InnerObject:             {0}", connMgr.InnerObject);
                Console.WriteLine("Name:                    {0}", connMgr.Name);
                Console.WriteLine("ProtectionLevel:         {0}", connMgr.ProtectionLevel);
                Console.WriteLine("SupportsDTCTransactions: {0}", connMgr.SupportsDTCTransactions);
