Property Value


The following code example shows how to use the BufferManager property to locate the columns in a PipelineBuffer row.

using System;  
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline;  
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper;  
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper;  
namespace Microsoft.Samples.SqlServer.Dts  
    public class SampleComponent : PipelineComponent  
        public override void ProcessInput( int InputID, PipelineBuffer buffer )  
            IDTSInput100 i = ComponentMetaData.InputCollection.GetObjectByID( InputID );  
            foreach( IDTSInputColumn100 col in i.InputColumnCollection)  
                int colIndex = BufferManager.FindColumnByLineageID(i.Buffer, col.LineageID);  
                BufferColumn bc =buffer.GetColumnInfo(colIndex);  
Imports System   
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline   
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper   
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper   
Namespace Microsoft.Samples.SqlServer.Dts   
 Public Class SampleComponent   
 Inherits PipelineComponent   
   Public Overrides Sub ProcessInput(ByVal InputID As Integer, ByVal buffer As PipelineBuffer)   
     Dim i As IDTSInput100 = ComponentMetaData.InputCollection.GetObjectByID(InputID)   
     For Each col As IDTSInputColumn100 In i.InputColumnCollection   
       Dim colIndex As Integer = BufferManager.FindColumnByLineageID(i.Buffer, col.LineageID)   
       Dim bc As BufferColumn = buffer.GetColumnInfo(colIndex)   
   End Sub   
 End Class   
End Namespace  


The BufferManager is a read only, execution-time property that is first available to components in the PreExecute method.

The FindColumnByLineageID method is used to locate a component's columns in the IDTSInputColumnCollection100 or IDTSOutputColumnCollection100 of the component, in the PipelineBuffer. This is necessary because the number of columns contained in the PipelineBuffer may exceed the number of columns expected by the component.

The BufferManager is also used to create new IDTSBuffer100 objects using the CreateBuffer, CreateFlatBuffer, and CreateVirtualBuffer methods. However, these methods are not supported from managed code, and should only be used when writing native C++ components.
