TaskHost.InnerObject Property


Gets the method used to access the task instance being hosted by the TaskHost.

 property System::Object ^ InnerObject { System::Object ^ get(); };
public object InnerObject { get; }
member this.InnerObject : obj
Public ReadOnly Property InnerObject As Object

Property Value


The object that is contained by the TaskHost.




The following code example adds a FileSystemTask and BulkInsertTask to a package and retrieves the tasks in a loop using the InnerObject method of the TaskHost to determine the task type.

Sample Output:

Type Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.FileSystemTask.FileSystemTask

Type Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.BulkInsertTask.BulkInsertTask


You can retrieve the specific task instance by casting the InnerObject of the TaskHost as the task type. Then you use the task's object to access its methods and properties directly.
