DataTable.ParentRelations Property

Gets the collection of parent relations for this DataTable.

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

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public DataRelationCollection ParentRelations { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Data.DataRelationCollection
A DataRelationCollection that contains the parent relations for the table. An empty collection is returned if no DataRelation objects exist.

The following example uses the ParentRelations property to return each parent DataRelation in a DataTable. Each relation is then used as an argument in the GetParentRows method of the DataRow to return an array of rows. The value of each column in the row is then printed.


private void GetChildRowsFromDataRelation(DataTable table)
{
    DataRow[] rowArray;
    foreach(DataRelation relation in table.ParentRelations)
    {
        foreach(DataRow row in table.Rows)
        {
            rowArray = row.GetParentRows(relation);
            // Print values of rows.
            for(int i = 0; i < rowArray.Length; i++)
            {
                foreach(DataColumn column in table.Columns)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine(rowArray[i][column]);
                }
            }
        }
    }
}
