The Package class implements the DtsContainer through its inheritance of the EventsProvider. The following code example creates a package, then displays and sets values inherited from DtsContainer.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;

namespace Microsoft.SqlServer.SSIS.Samples
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            // The package is the ExecuteProcess package sample 
            // that is installed with the SSIS samples.
            string pkg = @"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx";

            Application app = new Application();
            Package p1 = app.LoadPackage(pkg, null);

            // Show the properties inherited from DtsContainer.
            Console.WriteLine("CreationName:    {0}", p1.CreationName);
            Console.WriteLine("DebugMode:       {0}", p1.DebugMode);
            Console.WriteLine("DelayValidation: {0}", p1.DelayValidation);
            Console.WriteLine("Description:     {0}", p1.Description);
            Console.WriteLine("Disable:         {0}", p1.Disable);

            // Description is not set for this sample, so set it.
            p1.Description = "This is the Execute Process Package Sample";
            Console.WriteLine("Description after modification: {0}", p1.Description);

            Console.WriteLine();
        }
    }
}
