DataTableReader.HasRows Property

Gets a value that indicates whether the DataTableReader contains one or more rows.

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

public override bool HasRows { get; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_HasRows ()

public override function get HasRows () : boolean

Not applicable.

Property Value

true if the DataTableReader contains one or more rows; otherwise false.

Exception typeCondition

InvalidOperationException

An attempt was made to retrieve information about a closed DataTableReader.

The HasRows property returns information about the current result set. If the DataTableReader contains multiple result sets, you can examine the value of the HasRows property immediately after you call the NextResult method in order to determine whether the new result set contains rows.

Use the HasRows property to avoid the requirement to call the Read method of the DataTableReader if there are no rows within the current result set.

The following example fills two DataTable instances with data. The first DataTable contains one row, and the second contains no rows. The example then creates a DataTableReader that contains both DataTable objects, and calls the PrintData method to display the contents of each, checking the value of the HasRows property of each before it makes the call to PrintData.

private static void TestHasRows()
{
    DataTable customerTable = GetCustomers();
    DataTable productTable = GetProducts();

    using (DataTableReader reader = new DataTableReader(
               new DataTable[] { customerTable, productTable }))
    {
        do
        {
            if (reader.HasRows)
            {
                PrintData(reader);
            }
        } while (reader.NextResult());
    }

    Console.WriteLine("Press Enter to finish.");
    Console.ReadLine();
}

private static void PrintData(DataTableReader reader)
{
    // Loop through all the rows in the DataTableReader
    while (reader.Read())
    {
        for (int i = 0; i < reader.FieldCount; i++)
        {
            Console.Write(reader[i] + " ");
        }
        Console.WriteLine();
    }
}

private static DataTable GetCustomers()
{
    // Create sample Customers table, in order
    // to demonstrate the behavior of the DataTableReader.
    DataTable table = new DataTable();
    // Create two columns, ID and Name.
    DataColumn idColumn = table.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(int));
    table.Columns.Add("Name", typeof(string ));
    // Set the ID column as the primary key column.
    table.PrimaryKey = new DataColumn[] { idColumn };

    table.Rows.Add(new object[] { 1, "Mary" });
    return table;
}

private static DataTable GetProducts()
{
    // Create sample Products table, in order
    // to demonstrate the behavior of the DataTableReader.
    DataTable table = new DataTable();

    // Create two columns, ID and Name.
    DataColumn idColumn = table.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(int));
    table.Columns.Add("Name", typeof(string ));
  
    // Set the ID column as the primary key column.
    table.PrimaryKey = new DataColumn[] { idColumn };
    return table;
