DataRow.Delete Method

Deletes the DataRow.

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

public void Delete ()
public void Delete ()
public function Delete ()

Exception typeCondition

DeletedRowInaccessibleException

The DataRow has already been deleted.

If the RowState of the row is Added, the row is removed from the table.

The RowState becomes Deleted after you use the Delete method. It remains Deleted until you call AcceptChanges.

A deleted row can be undeleted by invoking RejectChanges.

The following example creates a simple DataTable with two columns and ten rows. After deleting several DataRow items with the Delete method, one of the rows is undeleted by invoking RejectChanges.

private void DemonstrateDeleteRow()
{
    // Create a simple DataTable with two columns and ten rows.
    DataTable table = new DataTable("table");
    DataColumn idColumn = new DataColumn("id",
        Type.GetType("System.Int32"));
    idColumn.AutoIncrement=true;
    DataColumn itemColumn = new DataColumn("item", 
        Type.GetType("System.String"));
    table.Columns.Add(idColumn);
    table.Columns.Add(itemColumn);

    // Add ten rows.
    DataRow newRow;
     
    for(int i = 0; i <10; i++)
    {
        newRow = table.NewRow();
        newRow["item"] = "Item " + i;
        table.Rows.Add(newRow);
    
    table.AcceptChanges();

    DataRowCollection itemColumns = table.Rows;
    itemColumns[0].Delete();
    itemColumns[2].Delete();
    itemColumns[3].Delete();
    itemColumns[5].Delete();
    Console.WriteLine(itemColumns[3].RowState.ToString());

    // Reject changes on one deletion.
    itemColumns[3].RejectChanges();

    // Change the value of the column so it stands out.
    itemColumns[3]["item"] = "Deleted, Undeleted, Edited";

    // Accept changes on others.
    table.AcceptChanges();

    // Print the remaining row values.
    foreach(DataRow row in table.Rows)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(row[0] + "\table" + row[1]);
