CManagedComponentWrapperClass.SetUsageType Method (Int32, IDTSVirtualInput100, Int32, DTSUsageType)


Creates an IDTSInputColumn100 object in the IDTSInputColumnCollection100 of the component and sets the UsageType property of the column.

Namespace:   Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.DTSPipelineWrap (in Microsoft.SqlServer.DTSPipelineWrap.dll)

public virtual IDTSInputColumn100 SetUsageType(
	int lInputID,
	IDTSVirtualInput100 pIDTSVirtualInputObject,
	int lLineageID,
	DTSUsageType eUsageType


Type: System.Int32

The ID of the IDTSInput100 object.

Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper.IDTSVirtualInput100

The IDTSVirtualInput100 object.

Type: System.Int32

The LineageID of the IDTSVirtualInputColumn100 object.

Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper.DTSUsageType

The usage type of the input column.

Return Value

Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper.IDTSInputColumn100

The IDTSInputColumn100 whose usage type is set, or null if the column was removed from the collection.

This method is used to select the columns from the upstream component in the data flow graph that are used by the component. Call this method to add or remove an IDTSInputColumn100 from the InputColumnCollection of the component. It also specifies whether the component has read-only access to the column or if it can overwrite the values of the column during execution.

If eusageType is UT_READONLY or UT_READWRITE, the component adds the column to its input column collection and provides the column to the data flow engine during execution. If UT_IGNORED is specified, and the column has previously been added to the collection, the column is removed.

The following code example shows how SetUsageType is used to select the columns from the upstream component that are used by the component. The example assumes that the package has already been created or loaded, and that the data flow task and components have been added to the package.

IDTSComponentMetaData100 md = dataFlow.ComponentMetaDataCollection[1];
CManagedComponentWrapper wrp = md.Instantiate();
IDTSInput100 input = md.InputCollection[0];
IDTSVirtualInput100 vInput = input.GetVirtualInput();

foreach(IDTSVirtualInputColumn100 vCol in vInput.VirtualInputColumnCollection)
