Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

A Boolean value that specifies whether there is an update trigger defined on the table.

If True, there is an update trigger defined on the table. Otherwise, False (default).

An update trigger executes when a row of data is updated.

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


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

foreach (Table tb in db.Tables) 
    if (tb.HasUpdateTrigger == true)
      Console.WriteLine("The " + tb.Name + " table has an update 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.HasUpdateTrigger -eq $TRUE)
      Write-Host "The" $tb.Name "table has an update trigger."
