DtsEnumerator DtsEnumerator DtsEnumerator Class


Defines an abstract base class that implements the IEnumerator methods.

public ref class DtsEnumerator abstract : System::Collections::IEnumerator
public abstract class DtsEnumerator : System.Collections.IEnumerator
Public MustInherit Class DtsEnumerator
Implements IEnumerator


The following code example adds a task to a package then runs the package. The warnings collection is shown by creating a WarningEnumerator, which inherits from this DtsEnumerator class, and displays each warning description.

            Console.WriteLine("SendMailTask: {0}", taskH2.ID);  
            // Test that warnings were successfully added to the collection.

            while ((myEnumerator.MoveNext()) && (myEnumerator.Current != null))  
                Console.WriteLine("[{0}] {1}", i++, myEnumerator.Current.Description);

            Console.WriteLine("SendMailTask: {0}", taskH2.ID)  
            ' Test that warnings were successfully added to the collection.  
            package.MaximumErrorCount = 100  
            package.FailPackageOnFailure = False

            Dim i As Integer =  0   
            While (myEnumerator.MoveNext()) &&(myEnumerator.Current <> Nothing)  
                Console.WriteLine("[{0}] {1}",i = Console.WriteLine("[{0}] {1}",i + 1  
            End While  
        End Sub  
    End Class  
End Namespace  

Sample Output:

Package warnings count before running: 0

SendMailTask: {34CAEFF9-64BF-401D-B646-C88B705DB971}

Package warnings count after running the package: 2

The collection contains the following values:

[0] The address in the From line is not formed correctly. It is missing an @ or it is not valid.

[1] Subject is empty


DtsEnumerator is the base interface for all enumerators. The DtsEnumerator allows only reading of the data in the collection and is not used to modify the underlying collection.

Initially, the enumerator is positioned before the first element in the collection. Reset also brings the enumerator back to this position. At this position, calling Current throws an exception. Therefore, you must call MoveNext to advance the enumerator to the first element of the collection before reading the value of Current.

Current returns the same object until either MoveNext or Reset is called. MoveNext sets Current to the next element.

After the end of the collection is passed, the enumerator is positioned after the last element in the collection, and calling MoveNext returns false. If the last call to MoveNext returned false, calling Current throws an exception. To set Current to the first element of the collection again, you can call Reset followed by MoveNext.

An enumerator remains valid as long as the collection remains unchanged. If changes are made to the collection, such as adding, modifying, or deleting elements, the enumerator is irrecoverably invalidated and the next call to MoveNext or Reset throws an InvalidOperationException. If the collection is modified between MoveNext and Current, Current will return the element that it is set to, even if the enumerator is already invalidated.

The enumerator does not have exclusive access to the collection; therefore, enumerating through a collection is not a thread-safe procedure. Even when a collection is synchronized, other threads could still modify the collection, which causes the enumerator to throw an exception. To guarantee thread safety during enumeration, you can lock the collection during the entire enumeration or catch the exceptions that result from changes made by other threads.


DtsEnumerator(IEnumerator, DTSReadOnlyCollectionBase) DtsEnumerator(IEnumerator, DTSReadOnlyCollectionBase) DtsEnumerator(IEnumerator, DTSReadOnlyCollectionBase)

Initializes a new instance of the DtsEnumerator class.


Current Current Current

Gets the current element in the collection.


MoveNext() MoveNext() MoveNext()

Advances the enumerator to the next element of the collection.

Reset() Reset() Reset()

Sets the enumerator to its initial position, which is before the first element in the collection.
