DataColumnCollection.Item Property (Int32)

Gets the DataColumn from the collection at the specified index.

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

public DataColumn this [
	int index
] { get; 
/** @property */
public DataColumn get_Item (int index)

JScript supports the use of indexed properties, but not the declaration of new ones.

Parameters

index

The zero-based index of the column to return.

Property Value

The DataColumn at the specified index.

Exception typeCondition

IndexOutOfRangeException

The index value is greater than the number of items in the collection.

The Contains method can be used to test for the existence of a column. This is useful before you try to use Item.

The following example uses the Item property to print the ColumnName value of a DataColumn object specified by index. The example uses the DataTable that is contained by a System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid control.

private void PrintColumnNamesByIndex(DataTable table)
{
    // Get the DataColumnCollection from a DataTable in a DataSet.
    DataColumnCollection columns = table.Columns;

    // Print each column's name using the Index.
    for (int i = 0 ;i <columns.Count ;i++)
        Console.WriteLine(columns[i]);
