Assembly: System.Data (in system.data.dll)
The ITableMapping interface allows an inheriting class to implement a TableMapping class, which associates a data source column with a DataSet column. For more information, see Setting Up DataTable and DataColumn Mappings.
An application does not create an instance of the ITableMapping interface directly, but creates an instance of a class that inherits ITableMapping.
Classes that inherit ITableMapping must implement the inherited members, and typically define additional members to add provider-specific functionality. For example, the ITableMapping interface defines the DataSetTable property. In turn, the DataTableMapping class inherits this property, and also defines the GetDataTableBySchemaAction method.Notes to Implementers When you inherit from the ITableMapping interface, you should implement the following constructors:
Initializes a new instance of the TableMapping class.
TableMapping(string sourceTable, string dataSetTable)
Initializes a new instance of the TableMapping class with a source when given a source table name and a DataTable name.
TableMapping(string sourceTable, string dataSetTable, DataColumnMapping columnMappings)
Initializes a new instance of the TableMapping class when given a source table name, a DataTable name, and an array of ColumnMapping objects.
The following example creates an instance of the derived class, DataTableMapping, and adds it to a DataTableMappingCollection collection. It then informs the user that the mapping was added to the collection and displays the parent mapping.
