using System;  
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;  
namespace Microsoft.SSIS.Samples  
   DisplayName = "MyTask",  
   IconResource = "MyTask.MyTaskIcon.ico",  
   UITypeName = "My Custom Task," +  
   "Version=," +  
   "Culture = Neutral," +  
   "PublicKeyToken = 12345abc6789de01",  
   TaskType = "PackageMaintenance",  
   TaskContact = "MyTask; company name; any other information",  
   RequiredProductLevel = DTSProductLevel.None  
  public class MyTask : Task  
    // Your code here.  
Imports System  
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime  
<DtsTask(DisplayName:="MyTask", _  
 IconResource:="MyTask.MyTaskIcon.ico", _  
 UITypeName:="My Custom Task," & _  
 "Version=,Culture=Neutral," & _  
 "PublicKeyToken=12345abc6789de01", _  
 TaskType:="PackageMaintenance", _  
 TaskContact:="MyTask; company name; any other information", _  
 RequiredProductLevel:=DTSProductLevel.None)> _  
Public Class MyTask  
  Inherits Task  
  ' Your code here.  
End Class 'MyTask
