    string nameOrID
String^ GetConnectionName(
    Connections^ connections, 
    String^ nameOrID
member GetConnectionName : 
        connections:Connections * 
        nameOrID:string -> string 
public function GetConnectionName(
    connections : Connections,

) : String


  • nameOrID
    Type: System.String
    The ID of the connection to return.

Return Value

Type: System.String
A String containing the connection's name.


This function is useful when if you are writing a custom task, and want to convert between the connection ID and the connection name.


The following code example shows an example of a task using the GetConnectionID method to get and set the names and ID of the connection in the task's custom myConnection property.

public string myConnection 
          {return GetConnectionName(m_connections, m_ MyConnectionName);
          {m_MyConnectionName = GetConnectionID(m_connections, value);}
Public Property myConnection() As String
              Return GetConnectionName(m_connections, m_ MyConnectionName)
  End Get
  Set (ByVal Value As String) 
              m_MyConnectionName = GetConnectionID(m_connections, value)
  End Set
End Property
