Gets the UInt32 value stored in the buffer column.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

  • columnIndex
    Type: System.Int32
    The index of the column in the buffer row.

Return Value

Type: System.UInt32
The UInt32 value stored in the buffer column.


This method works with the DT_UI4 data type in Integration Services.

If the buffer column DataType is not DT_UI4, the PipelineBuffer produces an UnsupportedBufferDataTypeException.

If the value of the column is null, the PipelineBuffer produces a ColumnIsNullException. You can check for null by first calling the IsNull method.

For a complete list of Integration Services data types and the corresponding Get and Set methods of the PipelineBuffer class to use with each type, see Working with Data Types in the Data Flow.
