DataTypeInfos.GetEnumerator Method

Returns a DataTypeInfoEnumerator that can iterate through the DataTypeInfo collection.

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

public DataTypeInfoEnumerator GetEnumerator()

The following code sample creates a DataTypeInfoEnumerator using the GetEnumerator method, and then iterates 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

[20] database date DT_DBDATE

[21] database time DT_DBTIME

[22] database timestamp DT_DBTIMESTAMP

[23] image DT_IMAGE

[24] text stream DT_TEXT

[25] Unicode text stream DT_NTEXT

The first item in the enumerator after Reset:

float, DT_R4
