This method will return an enumerator containing name objects for the "controllers" of the dataset. Controllers include feature datasets, topologies, and network datasets. Using the esriDTAny value for the DatasetType parameter will not return an enumerator containing all controllers. Attempting to retrieve controller names that don't exist - for example, requesting the feature dataset name for a standalone feature class - will result in an error.
