tagBUFFERCOL Structure

 

Contains metadata that describes the data stored in a buffer column.

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

public struct tagBUFFERCOL

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

(Inherited from ValueType.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

(Inherited from ValueType.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

(Inherited from ValueType.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubfieldDataType

Specifies the data type of the value contained in the column.

System_CAPS_pubfieldlCodePage

Specifies the character set used to interpret the data in a buffer column.

System_CAPS_pubfieldlLengthOffset

Indicates the number of bytes from the beginning of a buffer row to the end of the column data.

System_CAPS_pubfieldlMaxLength

Indicates the maximum length of the data stored in a buffer column.

System_CAPS_pubfieldlOffset

Indicates the number of bytes from the beginning of a buffer row to the beginning of the column data.

System_CAPS_pubfieldlPrecision

Indicates the number of decimal places of precision contained in a buffer column.

System_CAPS_pubfieldlScale

Indicates the number of decimal places contained in the buffer column.

System_CAPS_pubfieldlStatusOffset

Indicates the length in bytes from the beginning of a buffer row to the status value of a column.

The columns in an IDTSBuffer100 contain metadata about the column data. This information is represented by the tagBUFFERCOL structure. This structure is retrieved for an individual column by calling the GetColumnInfo method.

The values contained in the fields within the structure reflect the values contained in the IDTSOutputColumn100 that originally inserted the column into the data flow.

System_CAPS_noteNote

The tagBUFFERCOL structure is also represented by the DTP_BUFFCOL and BufferColumn structures. The DTP_BUFFCOL structure is a C++ type definition. When writing managed code, you will use the BufferColumn structure.

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