Task.ExecutionValue Property


Returns a user-defined object. This field is read-only.

Public Overridable ReadOnly Property ExecutionValue As Object

Property Value

A user-defined object.


The following code example creates the Send Mail task, which inherits from Task, and then displays the properties the task has inherited.

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

namespace Microsoft.SqlServer.SSIS.Samples  
    class Program  
        static void Main(string[] args)  
            Application app = new Application();  
            Package pkg = new Package();  
            // Add a Send Mail task to the package.  
            Executable exec = pkg.Executables.Add("STOCK:SendMailTask");  

            // Cast the task to its own class.  
            TaskHost th = exec as TaskHost;  
            SendMailTask smTask = th.InnerObject as SendMailTask;  

            // Display the properties inherited from Task.  
            Console.WriteLine("ExecutionValue: {0}", smTask.ExecutionValue);  
            Console.WriteLine("Version: {0}", smTask.Version);  
            Console.WriteLine("WaitForMe: {0}", smTask.WaitForMe);  
Imports System  
Imports System.Collections.Generic  
Imports System.Text  
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime  
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.SendMailTask  

Namespace Microsoft.SqlServer.SSIS.Samples  
    Class Program  
        Shared  Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)  
            Dim app As Application =  New Application()   
            Dim pkg As Package =  New Package()   
            ' Add a Send Mail task to the package.  
            Dim exec As Executable =  pkg.Executables.Add("STOCK:SendMailTask")   

            ' Cast the task to its own class.  
            Dim th As TaskHost =  exec as TaskHost   
            Dim smTask As SendMailTask =  th.InnerObject as SendMailTask   

            ' Display the properties inherited from Task.  
            Console.WriteLine("ExecutionValue: {0}", smTask.ExecutionValue)  
            Console.WriteLine("Version: {0}", smTask.Version)  
            Console.WriteLine("WaitForMe: {0}", smTask.WaitForMe)  
        End Sub  
    End Class  
End Namespace  

Sample Output:


Version: 0

WaitForMe: True


The ExecutionValue property of the Task class is a read-only object property that gives the task the ability to expose information regarding the results of its execution, post messages, or return the DTSExecResult return value. For example, if a task deletes rows from a table as part of its Execute method, it might return the number of rows deleted as the ExecutionValue. Clients of the task could then use this value to establish precedence constraints between tasks.

Tasks override the base implementation of the ExecutionValue property and a value that is set by the task during its Execute method.
