  • allProperties
    Type: System.Boolean
    A Boolean value that specifies whether to load all the property values.
    If True, the property values are loaded. Otherwise, False.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
A Boolean value that specifies whether the object initialized successfully.
If True, the object initialized successfully. Otherwise, False.


This method initializes an object and loads its properties. SMO does not automatically load all the properties when the object is constructed. Whether the property is loaded initially depends on the IsExpensive property and the default initialization fields. Otherwise, properties are loaded automatically when they are specifically referenced in the code, or when the Initialize method is called.
