DataTypeInfoEnumerator.Current Property


Gets the current element in the collection.

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

public object Current { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object

The current element in the collection.

After an enumerator is created, or after a call to the Reset method, the MoveNext method must be called to advance the enumerator to the first element of the collection before reading the value of the Current property; otherwise, Current is undefined and throws an exception.

Current also throws an exception if the last call to MoveNext returned false, which indicates the end of the collection.

Current does not move the position of the enumerator, and consecutive calls to the Current return the same object until either MoveNext or Reset is called.

An enumerator remains valid as long as the collection remains unchanged. If changes are made to the collection, such as adding, modifying, or deleting elements, the enumerator is invalidated and becomes irrecoverable. If the collection is modified between calls to MoveNext and Current, Current returns the element that it is set to, even if the enumerator has been invalidated.

The following code sample creates an enumerator, and then uses the Current, MoveNext, and Reset methods to navigate over the collection.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;
namespace DataTypeInfos_GetEnum_Current
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            //Create the DataTypeInfos collection.
            DataTypeInfos dataInfos = new Application().DataTypeInfos;

            //Create the Enumerator.
            DataTypeInfoEnumerator myEnumerator = dataInfos.GetEnumerator();
            Console.WriteLine("The collection contains the following values:");
            int i = 0;
            DataTypeInfo dtiObject;
            while ((myEnumerator.MoveNext()) && (myEnumerator.Current != null))
                dtiObject = (DataTypeInfo)myEnumerator.Current;
                Console.WriteLine("[{0}] {1} {2}", i++, dtiObject.TypeName, dtiObject.TypeEnumName);
            // Reset puts the index pointer before the beginning.
            // Do not retrieve from the collection until MoveNext is called.
            // Now that the enumerator has been reset, and moved to the
            // first item in the collection, show the first item.
            dtiObject = (DataTypeInfo)myEnumerator.Current;
            Console.WriteLine("The first item in the enumerator after Reset:");
            Console.WriteLine("{0}, {1}", dtiObject.TypeName, dtiObject.TypeEnumName);

Sample Output:

The collection contains the following values:

[0] float DT_R4

[1] double-precision float DT_R8

[2] currency DT_CY

[3] date DT_DATE

[4] Boolean DT_BOOL

[5] decimal DT_DECIMAL

[6] single-byte signed integer DT_I1

[7] single-byte unsigned integer DT_UI1

[8] two-byte signed integer DT_I2

[9] two-byte unsigned integer DT_UI2

[10] four-byte signed integer DT_I4

[11] four-byte unsigned integer DT_UI4

[12] eight-byte signed integer DT_I8

[13] eight-byte unsigned integer DT_UI8

[14] file timestamp DT_FILETIME

[15] unique identifier DT_GUID

[16] byte stream DT_BYTES

[17] string DT_STR

[18] Unicode string DT_WSTR

[19] numeric DT_NUMERIC
