        types:DatabaseObjectTypes * 
        order:SortOrder -> DataTable

Parameters

types
Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.DatabaseObjectTypes
A DatabaseObjectTypes object that limits the object types in the returned list.
order
Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.SortOrder
A SortOrder object value that specifies the way in which to order the returned list of objects.

Description.

DatabaseObjectTypes

String

The type of database object. See DatabaseObjectTypes enumeration.

Schema

String

The schema associated with the referenced object.

Name

String

The name of the referenced object.

Urn

The example runs a Server object enumeration method, but extracting the information from the DataTable object is the same for Database enumeration methods.

VB

'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server
'Call the EnumCollations method and return collation information to DataTable variable.
Dim d As DataTable
'Select the returned data into an array of DataRow.
d = srv.EnumCollations
'Iterate through the rows and display collation details for the instance of SQL Server.
Dim r As DataRow
Dim c As DataColumn
For Each r In d.Rows
    Console.WriteLine("============================================")
    For Each c In r.Table.Columns
        Console.WriteLine(c.ColumnName + " = " + r(c).ToString)
    Next
Next

PowerShell

$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")

$d = new-object System.Data.Datatable
$d = $srv.EnumCollations

Foreach ($r in $d.Rows)
{
   Write-Host "============================================"
   Foreach ($c in $d.Columns)
   {
      Write-Host $c.ColumnName "=" $r[$c]
   }
}
