Connections.Contains Method

Indicates whether the ConnectionManager items in the collection can be accessed by using indexing without throwing an exception.

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

public bool Contains(
	Object index
)

Parameters

index
Type: Object
The name, description, ID, or index to locate in the collection.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
true if the collection can be accessed by using the syntax Connections[index]. If true, the collection can be accessed by name, description, or index. false if indexing cannot be used to retrieve items from the Connections collection.

The following code sample removes a newly-added ADO.NET connection manager from the collection. It then uses the Contains method to make sure that the connection manager is removed.

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\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx";

            // Create an application and load the sample.
            Application app = new Application();
            Package pkg = app.LoadPackage(mySample, null);
            Connections myConns = pkg.Connections;

            // Show how many connections are in the package.
            int myConnsCount = myConns.Count;
            Console.WriteLine("The number of connections is: {0}", myConnsCount);

            // Add an OLEDB connection manager.
            ConnectionManager myConn = pkg.Connections.Add("OLEDB");
            myConn.Name = "My OLEDB ConnectionManager";
            myConn.ConnectionString = "Data Source=.;Initial Catalog=AdventureWorks;Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Auto Translate=False;";

            // Verify the addition of one connection manager.
            myConnsCount = myConns.Count;
            Console.WriteLine("The number of connections now is: {0}", myConnsCount);

            // Write out the names of the connection managers.
            foreach (ConnectionManager myCMgrs in myConns)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Name:        {0}", myCMgrs.Name);
                Console.WriteLine("ID:          {0}", myCMgrs.ID);
                Console.WriteLine("--------------------------------------------");
            }

            // Remove the connection manager by name.
            pkg.Connections.Remove("My OLEDB ConnectionManager");

            // Verify the removal of the connection manager.
            myConnsCount = myConns.Count;
            Console.WriteLine("The number of connections is finally: {0}", myConnsCount);

            // Using the Contains method, verify if the connection is in the collection.
            Boolean connRemoved = myConns.Contains("My OLEDB ConnectionManager");
            Console.WriteLine("The connection is still in the collection? {0}", connRemoved);
            Console.WriteLine();
        }
    }
}

Sample Output:

The number of connections is: 3

The number of connections now is: 4
