Property Value

A String that contains the connection manager name. The name may be the fully qualified assembly name (for managed assemblies), it may be the ProgID or CLSID (for COM DLLs), or it may be one of the STOCK monikers used to create the connection manager for a file.



The following code example creates a new FILE connection manager and displays the CreationName assigned to it by the runtime.

using System;  
using System.Collections.Generic;  
using System.Text;  
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;  
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.FileSystemTask;  
namespace FileSystemTask_API  
    class Program  
        static void Main(string[] args)  
            String sourceDir = @"C:\TestFolder";  
            Package pkg = new Package();  
            // Create a File connection manager.  
            ConnectionManager cm = pkg.Connections.Add("FILE");  
            cm.Name = "The FILE connection manager";  
            cm.Description = "My FILE connection manager";  
            cm.ConnectionString = sourceDir;  
            cm.Properties["FileUsageType"].SetValue(cm, DTSFileConnectionUsageType.FolderExists);  
            Console.WriteLine("CreationName:  {0}", cm.CreationName);  
Imports System  
Imports System.Collections.Generic  
Imports System.Text  
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime  
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.FileSystemTask  
Namespace FileSystemTask_API  
    Class Program  
        Shared  Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)  
            Dim sourceDir As String =  "C:\TestFolder"   
            Dim pkg As Package =  New Package()   
            ' Create a File connection manager.  
            Dim cm As ConnectionManager =  pkg.Connections.Add("FILE")   
            cm.Name = "The FILE connection manager"  
            cm.Description = "My FILE connection manager"  
            cm.ConnectionString = sourceDir  
            cm.Properties("FileUsageType").SetValue(cm, DTSFileConnectionUsageType.FolderExists)  
            Console.WriteLine("CreationName:  {0}", cm.CreationName)  
        End Sub  
    End Class  
End Namespace  

Sample Output:

CreationName: FILE
