The IDTSName class is inherited by many classes, including the Package class, through the DtsContainer class and into the EventsProvider class, which from there, it is inherited into the Package class and most other classes. The following code sample shows the IDTSName properties as used by the Package class.

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

namespace Microsoft.SqlServer.SSIS.Samples  
    class Program  
        static void Main(string[] args)  
            Package pkg = new Package();  
            // Display the properties inherited from IDTSName.  
            Console.WriteLine("CreationName: {0}", pkg.CreationName);  
            Console.WriteLine("Name:         {0}", pkg.Name);  
            Console.WriteLine("Description: {0}", pkg.Description);  
            Console.WriteLine("ID:          {0}", pkg.ID);  
Imports System  
Imports System.Collections.Generic  
Imports System.Text  
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime  

Namespace Microsoft.SqlServer.SSIS.Samples  
    Class Program  
        Shared  Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)  
            Dim pkg As Package =  New Package()   
            ' Display the properties inherited from IDTSName.  
            Console.WriteLine("CreationName: {0}", pkg.CreationName)  
            Console.WriteLine("Name:         {0}", pkg.Name)  
            Console.WriteLine("Description: {0}", pkg.Description)  
            Console.WriteLine("ID:          {0}", pkg.ID)  
        End Sub  
    End Class  
End Namespace
