DataRow.Item Property (String, DataRowVersion)

Gets the specified version of data stored in the named column.

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

public Object this[
	string columnName,
	DataRowVersion version
] { get; }

Parameters

columnName
Type: System.String

The name of the column.

version
Type: System.Data.DataRowVersion

One of the DataRowVersion values that specifies the row version that you want. Possible values are Default, Original, Current, and Proposed.

Property Value

Type: System.Object
An Object that contains the data.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

The column specified by columnName cannot be found.

InvalidCastException

The data types of the value and the column do not match.

VersionNotFoundException

The row does not have this version of data.

DeletedRowInaccessibleException

The row was deleted.

The version should not be confused with the RowState property. The version argument describes the state of the data that is contained by the column relative to the column's original value. The RowState property describes the state of the whole row relative to its parent DataTable.

When you set the property, an exception is generated if an exception occurs in the ColumnChanging event.

If this is an immediate edit, see EndEdit for the exceptions that can be generated.

The following example gets the current version of data at a clicked cell of a DataGrid control.

private void DataGrid1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    // Set the current row using the RowNumber  
    // property of the CurrentCell.
    DataRow currentRow =
        ((DataTable)(DataGrid1.DataSource)).
        Rows[DataGrid1.CurrentCell.RowNumber];

    // Print the current value of the column named "FirstName."
    Console.WriteLine(currentRow["FirstName", 
        DataRowVersion.Current]);
}
