Property Value

A value from the DTSXMLSourceType enumeration that indicates the type of source that contains the XML document the operation uses.

This property is available to the XMLTask, regardless of the OperationType value.


The following code example adds an XMLTask to a package, and sets properties using the TaskHost.

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

namespace XMLTask_API
{
    class Program
        {
        static void Main(string[] args)
            {
                // Set up the objects and tasks.
                Package pkg = new Package();
                Executable exec1 = pkg.Executables.Add("STOCK:XMLTask");
                TaskHost th = exec1 as TaskHost;
                // You can cast the InnerObject to the XmlTask here.
                // XMLTask myTask = th.InnerObject as XMLTask;

                // Create a variable and a FILE connection manager to books.xml.
                Variable resultVar = pkg.Variables.Add("resultVariable", false, "", "Variable for the result");
                ConnectionManager connMgr = pkg.Connections.Add("FILE");
                connMgr.Name = "XMLConnectionManager";
                // The file, Books.xml, is stored on the C:\ drive.
                connMgr.ConnectionString = @"c:\books.xml";

                // Set the XMLTask properties.
                // The first property to set is the OperationType. Depending on the
                // OperationType, different properties are valid.
                // The operation type in this example is VALIDATE.
                th.Properties["OperationType"].SetValue(th, DTSXMLOperation.Validate);
                th.Properties["SourceType"].SetValue(th, DTSXMLSourceType.FileConnection);
                th.Properties["Source"].SetValue(th, connMgr.Name);
                th.Properties["OverwriteDestination"].SetValue(th, true);
                th.Properties["SaveOperationResult"].SetValue(th, true);
                th.Properties["DestinationType"].SetValue(th, DTSXMLSaveResultTo.Variable);
                th.Properties["Destination"].SetValue(th, resultVar.Name);
                th.Properties["SecondOperandType"].SetValue(th, DTSXMLSourceType.DirectInput);
                th.Properties["SecondOperand"].SetValue(th, "<x></x>");
                th.Properties["ValidationType"].SetValue(th, DTSXMLValidationType.DTD);
                th.Properties["FailOnValidationFaile"].SetValue(th, true);
                DTSExecResult valResults = pkg.Validate(pkg.Connections, pkg.Variables, null, null);
                Console.WriteLine("RESULTS: {0}", valResults);
            }
      }
}
