PipelineBuffer.SetByte Method

Assigns a byte to a PipelineBuffer column.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.PipelineHost (in Microsoft.SqlServer.PipelineHost.dll)


Public Sub SetByte ( _
    columnIndex As Integer, _
    value As Byte _
Dim instance As PipelineBuffer
Dim columnIndex As Integer
Dim value As Byte

instance.SetByte(columnIndex, value)
public void SetByte(
    int columnIndex,
    byte value
void SetByte(
    int columnIndex, 
    unsigned char value
member SetByte : 
        columnIndex:int * 
        value:byte -> unit 
public function SetByte(
    columnIndex : int, 
    value : byte


  • columnIndex
    Type: System.Int32
    The index of the column in the buffer row.
  • value
    Type: System.Byte
    The value assigned to the buffer column.


The SetByte method assigns a single byte to the buffer column specified by the columnIndex parameter.

This method works with the DT_UI1 data type in Integration Services.

If the DataType of the buffer column is not DT_UI1, an UnsupportedBufferDataTypeException occurs.
