The IDTSName class is inherited by many classes, including the Package class, through the DtsContainer class and into the EventsProvider class, which from there, it is inherited into the Package class and most other classes. The following code sample shows the IDTSName properties as used by the Package class.

Imports System
Imports System.Collections.Generic
Imports System.Text
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime

Namespace Microsoft.SqlServer.SSIS.Samples
    Class Program
        Shared  Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)
            Dim pkg As Package =  New Package() 
            ' Display the properties inherited from IDTSName.
            Console.WriteLine("CreationName: {0}", pkg.CreationName)
            Console.WriteLine("Name:         {0}", pkg.Name)
            Console.WriteLine("Description: {0}", pkg.Description)
            Console.WriteLine("ID:          {0}", pkg.ID)
        End Sub
    End Class
End Namespace
