DataRowCollection Class

Represents a collection of rows for a DataTable.

Namespace: System.Data
Assembly: System.Data (in system.data.dll)

public sealed class DataRowCollection : InternalDataCollectionBase
public final class DataRowCollection extends InternalDataCollectionBase
public final class DataRowCollection extends InternalDataCollectionBase
Not applicable.

The DataRowCollection is a major component of the DataTable. While the DataColumnCollection defines the schema of the table, the DataRowCollection contains the actual data for the table, where each DataRow in the DataRowCollection represents a single row.

You can call the Add and Remove methods to insert and delete DataRow objects from the DataRowCollection. You can also call the Find method to search for DataRow objects that contain specific values in primary key columns, and the Contains method to search character-based data for single words or phrases.

The first example in this section prints the value of column 1 for every row in a DataRowCollection. The second example adds a new row created by using the NewRow method to the DataRowCollection.

private void ShowRows(DataTable table)
{
    // Print the number of rows in the collection.
    Console.WriteLine(table.Rows.Count);
    // Print the value of columns 1 in each row
    foreach(DataRow row in table.Rows)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(row[1]);
    }
}
 
private void AddRow(DataTable table)
{
    DataRowCollection rowCollection = table.Rows;
    // Instantiate a new row using the NewRow method.

    DataRow newRow = table.NewRow();
    // Insert code to fill the row with values.

    // Add the row to the DataRowCollection.
    table.Rows.Add(newRow);
}

This type is safe for multithreaded read operations. You must synchronize any write operations.
