DataSet.ShouldSerializeTables Method

Gets a value indicating whether Tables property should be persisted.

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

protected virtual bool ShouldSerializeTables()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the property value has been changed from its default; otherwise false.

You typically use this method only if you are either creating a designer for the DataSet, or creating your own control incorporating the DataSet.

The following example shows a class derived from the DataSet class. The ShouldSerializeTables method is called from within functions in the derived class.

public   class DerivedDataSet:System.Data.DataSet 
{
    public void ResetDataSetRelations()
    {
        // Check the ShouldPersistTable method  
        // before invoking Reset. 
        if(!this.ShouldSerializeTables())
        {
            this.Reset();
        }
    }
}
