' SuppliersProducts is a class derived from DataSet. 
Private suppliersProducts As SuppliersProducts 

Private Sub CreateConstraint()
   ' Declare parent column and child column variables. 
   Dim parentColumn As DataColumn
   Dim childColumn As DataColumn
   Dim fkConstraint As ForeignKeyConstraint

   ' Set parent and child column variables.
   parentColumn = suppliersProducts.Tables("Suppliers").Columns("SupplierID")
   childColumn = suppliersProducts.Tables("Products").Columns("SupplieriD")
   fkConstraint = New ForeignKeyConstraint( _
       "SuppierFKConstraint", parentColumn, childColumn)

   ' Set null values when a value is deleted.
   fkConstraint.DeleteRule = Rule.SetNull
   fkConstraint.UpdateRule = Rule.Cascade
   fkConstraint.AcceptRejectRule = AcceptRejectRule.Cascade

   ' Add the constraint, and set EnforceConstraints to true.
   suppliersProducts.Tables("Suppliers").Constraints.Add(fkConstraint)
