DataTypeInfos.Contains Method

Returns a Boolean that indicates whether the items in the collection can be accessed 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: System.Object
The index of the item to locate in the collection.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
A Boolean that indicates whether the collection can be accessed by index. A value of true indicates that the collection can be accessed using the syntax DataTypeInfos[index]. A value of false indicates that indexing cannot be used to retrieve items from the DataTypeInfos collection.

The following example uses the Contains method to see how many items are in the collection.

            }
            // Reset puts the index pointer before the beginning.
            // Do not retrieve from the collection until MoveNext is called.
            myEnumerator.Reset();
            myEnumerator.MoveNext();

            // Now that the enumerator has been reset, use Contains.

            // Now that the enumerator has been reset, and moved to the
            // first item in the collection, show the first item.
