Task.InitializeTask(Connections, VariableDispenser, IDTSInfoEvents, IDTSLogging, EventInfos, LogEntryInfos, ObjectReferenceTracker) Task.InitializeTask(Connections, VariableDispenser, IDTSInfoEvents, IDTSLogging, EventInfos, LogEntryInfos, ObjectReferenceTracker) Method


Initializes the properties associated with the task. This method is called by the runtime and is not used in code.

 virtual void InitializeTask(Microsoft::SqlServer::Dts::Runtime::Connections ^ connections, Microsoft::SqlServer::Dts::Runtime::VariableDispenser ^ variableDispenser, Microsoft::SqlServer::Dts::Runtime::IDTSInfoEvents ^ events, Microsoft::SqlServer::Dts::Runtime::IDTSLogging ^ log, Microsoft::SqlServer::Dts::Runtime::EventInfos ^ eventInfos, Microsoft::SqlServer::Dts::Runtime::LogEntryInfos ^ logEntryInfos, Microsoft::SqlServer::Dts::Runtime::ObjectReferenceTracker ^ refTracker);
public virtual void InitializeTask (Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Connections connections, Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.VariableDispenser variableDispenser, Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.IDTSInfoEvents events, Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.IDTSLogging log, Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.EventInfos eventInfos, Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.LogEntryInfos logEntryInfos, Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.ObjectReferenceTracker refTracker);


Connections Connections

A collection of connections used by the task.

VariableDispenser VariableDispenser

A VariableDispenser object for locking variables.

IDTSInfoEvents IDTSInfoEvents

An object that implements the IDTSInfoEvents interface.

IDTSLogging IDTSLogging

An object that implements the IDTSLogging interface.

EventInfos EventInfos

A collection that contains events to be raised during execution of the task.

LogEntryInfos LogEntryInfos

A collection of log entries.

ObjectReferenceTracker ObjectReferenceTracker

An object reference tracker.


Task developers define custom events by overriding the InitializeTask method of the Task base class, and creating a new EventInfo. The following code sample shows the InitializeTask method of a custom task, where two custom events are created, and added to the eventInfos collection.

public override void InitializeTask(Connections connections, VariableDispenser variables, IDTSInfoEvents events, IDTSLogging log, EventInfos eventInfos, LogEntryInfos logEntryInfos, ObjectReferenceTracker refTracker)  
    this.eventInfos = eventInfos;  
    string[] paramNames = new string[1];  
    TypeCode[] paramTypes = new TypeCode[1]{TypeCode.Int32};  
    string[] paramDescriptions = new string[1];  
    paramNames[0] = "InitialValue";  
    paramDescriptions[0] = "The value before increment.";  
    this.eventInfos.Add("OnBeforeIncrement","Fires before the task increments the value.",true,paramNames,paramTypes,paramDescriptions);  
    this.onBeforeIncrement = this.eventInfos["OnBeforeIncrement"];  
    paramDescriptions[0] = "The value after increment.";  
    this.eventInfos.Add("OnAfterIncrement","Fires after the initial value is updated.",true,paramNames, paramTypes,paramDescriptions);  
    this.onAfterIncrement = this.eventInfos["OnAfterIncrement"];  
Public Overrides Sub InitializeTask(ByVal connections As Connections,  ByVal variables As VariableDispenser, ByVal events As IDTSInfoEvents, ByVal log As IDTSLogging, ByVal eventInfos As EventInfos, ByVal logEntryInfos As LogEntryInfos, ByVal refTracker As ObjectReferenceTracker)   
    Me.eventInfos = eventInfos  
    Dim paramNames(0) As String  
    Dim paramTypes(0) As TypeCode = {TypeCode.Int32}  
    Dim paramDescriptions(0) As String  
    paramNames(0) = "InitialValue"  
    paramDescriptions(0) = "The value before increment."  
    Me.eventInfos.Add("OnBeforeIncrement", "Fires before the task increments the value.", True, paramNames, paramTypes, paramDescriptions)  
    Me.onBeforeIncrement = Me.eventInfos("OnBeforeIncrement")  
    paramDescriptions(0) = "The value after increment."  
    Me.eventInfos.Add("OnAfterIncrement", "Fires after the initial value is updated.", True, paramNames, paramTypes, paramDescriptions)  
    Me.onAfterIncrement = Me.eventInfos("OnAfterIncrement")  
End Sub  


For stock tasks, this method is used to set the log events of each task.

The run-time engine calls InitializeTask immediately after the task is created—before validation, execution, or persistence operations.
