PipelineComponent.PreExecute Method ()


Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview

Called after PrepareForExecute, and before PrimeOutput and ProcessInput.

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

Public Overridable Sub PreExecute

Component developers should factor as much functionality into PreExecute as possible because it is called one time per component instead of one time per buffer for ProcessInput. Components should locate the indexes of its input and output columns in the PipelineBuffer by calling the FindColumnByLineageID method of the BufferManager.

Legacy Code Example

The following example shows how to locate the column indexes of the columns in the InputColumnCollection. They are stored in a local variable and then used in ProcessInput to access the columns in the PipelineBuffer.

Private bufferColumnIndex As Integer() 

Public Overrides Sub PreExecute() 
 Dim input As IDTSInput100 = ComponentMetaData.InputCollection(0) 
 bufferColumnIndex = New Integer(input.InputColumnCollection.Count - 1) {} 
 Dim x As Integer = 0 
 While x < input.InputColumnCollection.Count
   bufferColumnIndex(x) = BufferManager.FindColumnByLineageID(input.Buffer, input.InputColumnCollection(x).LineageID) 
   x -= 1
 End While 
End Sub 

Public Overrides Sub ProcessInput(ByVal inputID As Integer, ByVal buffer As PipelineBuffer) 
 While buffer.NextRow 
   Dim x As Integer = 0 
   While x < bufferColumnIndex.Length 
     If Not buffer.IsNull(bufferColumnIndex(x)) Then 
     End If 
     x -= 1
   End While 
 End While 
End Sub
