Database DDL triggers are defined at the database level, and are initiated by data definition language changes to the database. The insert, update, and delete triggers are defined at the table level.

Specific database DDL triggers can be referenced by using this collection by specifying the name of the database DDL trigger. To add a new database DDL trigger to the collection, call the database DDL trigger constructor, DatabaseDdlTrigger.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.


'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.

'Reference the AdventureWorks database.
Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks")

'Display all the triggers in the database.
Dim tr As DatabaseDdlTrigger
For Each tr In db.Triggers
