ScriptBuffer.IsNull Method

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

protected bool IsNull(
	int ColumnIndex


Type: System.Int32
The index of the column.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the value of the specified column is null; otherwise, false.

The Script component developer does not use the ScriptBuffer class directly, but indirectly, through the derived classes in the BufferWrapper project item that represent the component's input and outputs.

The developer does not have to use the IsNull method, because the derived classes contain a <ColumnX>_IsNull property for each column.

The following sample code from the autogenerated BufferWrapper project item demonstrates how the Script component uses the IsNull method.

    Public Property [city_IsNull] As Boolean
            Return IsNull(1)
        End Get
        End Set
    End Property
