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 ConnectionManager type exposes the following members.

Public method AcquireConnection(Object) Creates an instance of the connection type.
Public method Dispose() Releases the resources used by the ConnectionManager.
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether two object instances are equal. (Inherited from DtsObject.)
Protected method Finalize() (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetExpression(String) Returns a String that contains the expression for the specified property. Null means that no expression has been assigned.
Public method GetHashCode() Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from DtsObject.)
Public method GetPackagePath() Gets or sets the path of the package that the connection applies to.
Public method GetType() (Inherited from Object.)
Public method LoadFromXML(XmlNode, IDTSEvents) This method is not callable by your application code. To load a package that has been saved as .xml, use the Application.LoadPackage method.
Protected method MemberwiseClone() (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ReleaseConnection(Object) Frees the connection established during AcquireConnection. Called at design time and runtime.
Public method SaveToXML(XmlDocument, XmlNode, IDTSEvents) This method is not callable by your application code. To save a package as .xml, use the Application.SaveToXml method.
Public method SetExpression(String, String) Assigns the specified expression to the property. Specify null to remove an existing expression from the property.
Public method SetQualifier(String) Changes a qualifier on the connection manager after the connection manager has been created but before it is used in a running package.
Public method ToString() (Inherited from Object.)

Public property ConnectionString Gets or sets the connection string used to establish a connection to a data source.
Public property 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.
Public property DelayValidation Gets or sets a Boolean that indicates whether package validation is delayed until the package runs.
Public property Description Gets or sets the description of the ConnectionManager object.
Public property HostType Gets an enumeration that describes the type of host that the connection is being used by. This property is read-only.
Public property ID Gets the ID of the ConnectionManager. This property is read-only.
Public property InnerObject Returns the specific connection type that was created. This property is read-only.
Public property Name Gets or sets the name of the ConnectionManager object.
Public property 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.
Public property ProtectionLevel Gets or sets the level of encryption performed on sensitive data that is contained in the package.
Public property Site Infrastructure.
Public property SupportsDTCTransactions Returns a Boolean that indicates if the connection supports Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MS DTC) transactions.

Public event Disposed Adds an event handler to listen to the Disposed event on the ConnectionManager.
