When you request the value of a property by calling the GetValue method, the object that you must pass as a parameter is the object to which the property belongs. For example, if you are working with an OLE DB connection manager as shown in the following example, and you have created a DtsProperty object for its ServerName property, then you would pass the connection manager object as the parameter to the GetValue method.
