Property Value

Type: System.String

A String that contains the connection manager name. The name may be the fully qualified assembly name (for managed assemblies), it may be the ProgID or CLSID (for COM DLLs), or it may be one of the STOCK monikers used to create the connection manager for a file.

The following code example creates a new FILE connection manager and displays the CreationName assigned to it by the runtime.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.FileSystemTask;

namespace FileSystemTask_API
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            String sourceDir = @"C:\TestFolder";
            Package pkg = new Package();

            // Create a File connection manager.
            ConnectionManager cm = pkg.Connections.Add("FILE");
            cm.Name = "The FILE connection manager";
            cm.Description = "My FILE connection manager";
            cm.ConnectionString = sourceDir;
            cm.Properties["FileUsageType"].SetValue(cm, DTSFileConnectionUsageType.FolderExists);
            Console.WriteLine("CreationName:  {0}", cm.CreationName);

Sample Output:

CreationName: FILE
