Property Value

The DataView associated with the DataTable.

The DefaultView property returns a DataView you can use to sort, filter, and search a DataTable.

The following example sets a property of the DataTable object's DataView through the DefaultView property. The example also shows the binding of a DataGridView control to a DataTable named "Suppliers" that includes a column named "CompanyName."

private void BindDataGrid()
{
    DataTable table = new DataTable();

    // Insert code to populate a DataTable with data. 

    // Bind grid to DataTable.
    dataGrid1.DataSource = table;
}

private void ChangeRowFilter()
{
    DataTable gridTable = (DataTable) dataGrid1.DataSource;

    // Set the RowFilter to display a company names that  
    // begin with A through I..
    gridTable.DefaultView.RowFilter = "CompanyName < 'I'";
}
