ReplicationObject.LoadProperties Method

Loads the properties of an existing object from the server.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo.dll)
public bool LoadProperties()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
A Boolean value. If true, the object exists on the instance of Microsoft SQL Server. If false, the object does not exist on the instance of SQL Server.

If properties have already been loaded, they will not be reloaded. If they are not current, call the Refresh method on the object to refresh the properties.

If sufficient information about this object is missing, an exception is raised. If the object does not exist on the server, the method returns false. Otherwise, properties are loaded and the method returns true.
