Property Value

Type: System.String
The fully qualified name of the type implementing the IDtsComponentUI interface.


This optional property specifies the user interface that is displayed when the component is edited in SQL Server or Business Intelligence Development Studio.

The format of the property is a comma-delimited string that contains the following elements:

  • Type name

  • Assembly name

  • File version

  • Culture

  • Public key token

The type name specified in this property implements the IDtsComponentUI interface. The values of the Culture and PublicKeyToken parameters can be found by examining the properties of the user interface assembly in the global assembly cache.


The following example shows a component that specifies an editor using this property.
