Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

A Boolean value that specifies whether there are any instead of triggers defined on the table.

If True, at least one of the table's triggers is defined as an instead of trigger. Otherwise, False (default).

An "instead of" trigger runs instead of the triggering statement.

The following code example shows how to list each table in the AdventureWorks2012 database with an instead of trigger.


Server srv = new Server("(local)");
Database db = srv.Databases["AdventureWorks2012"];

foreach (Table tb in db.Tables) 
    if (tb.HasInsteadOfTrigger == true)
      Console.WriteLine("The " + tb.Name + " table has an instead of trigger");


$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")
$db = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Database
$db = $srv.Databases.Item("AdventureWorks2012")

Foreach ($tb in $db.Tables) 
   If ($tb.HasInsteadOfTrigger -eq $TRUE)
      Write-Host "The" $tb.Name "table has an instead of trigger."
