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

bool ValidateExternalMetadata { get; set; }
/** @property */
/** @attribute DispIdAttribute(126) */ 
boolean get_ValidateExternalMetadata ()

/** @property */
/** @attribute DispIdAttribute(126) */ 
void set_ValidateExternalMetadata (/** @attribute InAttribute() */ boolean pbValidate)

function get ValidateExternalMetadata () : boolean

function set ValidateExternalMetadata (pbValidate : boolean)

Property Value

true if the component should validate its column metadata against the external data source during design time; otherwise, false. The default is true.

When this property is true, the component connects to its external data source during design time and validates the columns in its input or output collections against the columns at the external data source.

When set to false, the component does not perform this "connected" validation, but validates its input and output columns against the columns in the IDTSExternalMetadataColumnCollection90 collection, if the developer has implemented this functionality.

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
