Custom Task Type Name Issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I am developing a custom task in VB.NET using VS2008.

My Project sets the Assembly Name to MyCompany.Dts.Tasks.MyTask, the Root Namespace is MyCompany.Dts.Tasks

All my classes define the namespace as MyCompany.Dts.Tasks

When I compile the class library, and view the component in the "Choose Toolbox Items" dialog in VS, the Type Name is:


Where is this extra decoration coming from?

Custom SSIS task inteface building issue


Hi all,

I'm tying to use the class foundation that SSIS provides to build interfaces like those of built in tasks

I tried to follow this tutorial


I added a Display text property to my task in order to display it when the task is fired, every thing goes well

except three  issues

1. The display value is not persisted( when I change it from the GUI inteface. It is only persisted if it is updated from the BIDS properties grid)

2. The buttons OK, Cancel, Help are not displayed at the buttom of the interface such in the rest of built in tasks, should I add them programmatically and  if it is the case how  do I to persist properties values when user clicks OK.

3. Some cells in the properties grid shows a combo box like those configuring  connection managers. For example one can expand the combo box and selects <New Connection...>  

Or when one property grid cell get the focus then ellipses button appears when he/she clicks then the OpenDialogResult opens up

Or if one selects some properties grid cells then the properties grid changes by

SortPropertiesAttribute for Custom SSIS task issue?



I have decorated internal node class with


SortProperties(new string[] {"Name","DisplayText","Description" })]



Custom Task poeprties values persistance issue?



This is the case: I wrote a simple task that has one property Display text, it displays text once the package if fired. This built in task has an interface. The user should normally enter the display text property value and click OK then that value is persisted. If the user interface is closed then reopened then this value should be held as normally.

Should I write custom code to cache this value and then write a code to persist it or this is done through a provided way by the SSIS, I asked this question before and CosyRock oriented me to some code samples which I followed with a great intention but until now I couldn't figure out how to persist properties values.

In this case I use the IDtsTaskUI interface to tie the task to its interface and you know there isn't an Edit method such is IDtsComponent interface so I can imlement it to commit or rollback values?

 Thank you

Custom task user interface issue?



I have designed a custom task with a general view that holds a properties grid in a general view node. I have developed a custom editor to help user set the value of that property, Of Corse, I point my property to use that editor in design time using System.ComponentModel.EditorAttibuteClass . The editor appears as a modal dialog box. 

The issue is that when I put the Dock property of the properties grid to Fill then the ellipsis button doesn't appear but if I set the dock property to None then it appears (I mean the ellipsis button) and then I can click it to configure the property though that Modal dialog box.

So the question should I do additional steps to avoid this anomally

Thank you

Custom list -- control issue with column type "Choice" and Infopath 2010

I finally got our project lead to abandon external SQL lists, so now I've created custom lists in SP 2010. I have some columns that are of "Choice" type/"Display as radio buttons" (customer requirement). When I start Infopath 2010 locally and create the data connections to the list(s), those choice fields display in I/P as dropdowns. If I change the control with a right-click to "Option Button", I only get one -- I need 2 (yes, no) or, in a few upcoming cases 3 or 4. BTW, same with changing the control to a check box -- only get 1. FWIW, I get the same results if I start Infopath directly from the list in SP Designer 2010. Any ideas?

Issue with List Definition of same base content type and deployed via same feature


I am trying to deploy two custom list definitions using only one single feature.  Below are the details of my issue.

  • Two custom list definitions
  • Each custom list definition has its own custom content type
  • Each custom content type inherits from the base content type Picture (Type = 109)
  • The custom list definitions are grouped together under one single feature
  • The custom content types are grouped together under a seperate single feature

When I deploy my solution in this configuration, the second list definition gets the first custom content type applied to it and the list schema from the first list definition is also applied to the second list definition.

What makes this more interesting, when I seperate both of the list definitions under two seperate features it all works fine.  Custom content types and list schemas get applied correctly.

Can anyone tell me why I can not deploy both list definitions under one single feature?

If you need me to post any of the origional code or XML to this post please let me know.

Custom Search issue with freetext


Hi All,

My Environment : MOSS 2007 (sp2) with SQL Server 2005

I have a custom search webpart which uses FullTextSqlQuery to fetch the results from Index. I have a some keywords and a free text boxt to build the search query. Poeple enter their query by selecting the keywords and enter some free text into the text box.

Issue : When any PDF document (Not tested with .Doc) is searched using custom webpart with the numbers like "2,0233.21" I do not get any results returned even though the results are returned using the SharePoint out of box full text search. But when I search the content like "2+0233+21" I get results both in Out of box and in custom search webpart.

Requirement: The Custom search should be able to find the document when numbers like "2,0233.21" are entered. It should work exactly like the out of box search.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Execute Package Task password issue

I have a parent and child package. Both are stored on the file system and both are password protected. My problem is that when I call the child package from the parent using execute package task, I get prompted for the child package's password. Now the PackagePassword property of the Execute Package Task is supposed to take care of that. But for some reason the password stored in the Execute Package Task is not getting passed to the child package.  I've re-entered the PackPassword property several times, but it did not help.  I even tried loading the password from a config file, but that did not make any difference.  Can anyone help?

How to detect that a Data Flow Task has failed (from inside a custom componet)

Hi, in the PostExecute Method of a custom component i would like to check if the Data Flow Task has been failed. Is that possible? Also it would be great to be able to check if this custom component already got all data or has been marked as "green".  Thanks, Dennis
