Parameters

  • DataSource
    The full path name of the data source.

Return Value

A DataSourceDefinition object that contains the connection properties for the data source.

Example

To compile this code example, you must reference the Reporting Services WSDL and import certain namespaces. For more information, see Compiling and Running Code Examples. The following code example uses the GetDataSourceContents method to retrieve the data source definition of a shared data source and then displays the connection string and extension name as console output:

Imports System
Imports System.Web.Services.Protocols

Class Sample
   Public Shared Sub Main()
      Dim rs As New ReportingService2005()
      rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials

      Dim definition As DataSourceDefinition = Nothing

      Try
         definition = rs.GetDataSourceContents("/SampleReports/AdventureWorks")
         Console.WriteLine("Connection String: {0}", definition.ConnectString)
         Console.WriteLine("Extension name: {0}", definition.Extension)

      Catch e As SoapException
         Console.WriteLine(e.Detail.InnerXml.ToString())
      End Try
   End Sub 'Main
End Class 'Sample
using System;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;

class Sample
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      ReportingService2005 rs = new ReportingService2005();
      rs.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

      DataSourceDefinition definition = null;

      try
      {
         definition = rs.GetDataSourceContents( "/SampleReports/AdventureWorks" );
         Console.WriteLine( "Connection String: {0}", definition.ConnectString );
         Console.WriteLine( "Extension name: {0}", definition.Extension );
      }

      catch ( SoapException e )
      {
         Console.WriteLine( e.Detail.InnerXml.ToString() ); 
      }
   }
}
