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.

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)
            Package pkg = 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);
