DtsProperty.GetValue Method (Object)


Returns the value of the property.

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

public object GetValue(
	object o


Type: System.Object

The parent object of the property whose value is to be returned.

Return Value

Type: System.Object

An object that contains the value of the property.

When you request the value of a property by calling the GetValue method, the object that you must pass as a parameter is the object to which the property belongs. For example, if you are working with an OLE DB connection manager as shown in the following example, and you have created a DtsProperty object for its ServerName property, then you would pass the connection manager object as the parameter to the GetValue method.

using System;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;

namespace DtsPropertyGetValueCS
  class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
      Package testPackage;
      ConnectionManager testConnection;
      DtsProperty testProperty;
      string propertyValue;

      testPackage = new Package();
      testConnection = testPackage.Connections.Add("OLEDB");
      testConnection.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;" +
        "Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=AdventureWorks;" +
        "Integrated Security=SSPI";
      testConnection.Name = "Test Connection Manager";

      testProperty = testConnection.Properties["ServerName"];
      propertyValue = testProperty.GetValue(testConnection).ToString();

      Console.WriteLine("The value of ServerName is: " + propertyValue);
