DataView.Table Property

Gets or sets the source DataTable.

Namespace:  System.Data
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)
'Declaration
Public Property Table As DataTable

Property Value

Type: System.Data.DataTable
A DataTable that provides the data for this view.

The DataTable also has a DefaultView property which returns the default DataView for the table. For example, if you want to create a custom view on the table, set the RowFilter on the DataView returned by the DefaultView.

You can only set the Table property if the current value is null.

The following example gets the DataTable of the current DataView.

Private Sub DemonstrateDataViewTable()
    Dim table As DataTable = New DataTable()

    ' add columns 
    Dim column As DataColumn = table.Columns.Add("ProductID", GetType(Integer))
    column.AutoIncrement = True
    column = table.Columns.Add("ProductName", GetType(String))

    ' populate DataTable. 
    Dim id As Integer 
    For id = 1 To 5
        table.Rows.Add(New Object() {id, String.Format("product{0}", id)})
    Next id

    Dim view As DataView = New DataView(table)

    PrintTable(view.Table, "DataTable")
End Sub 

Private Sub PrintTable(ByVal table As DataTable, ByVal label As String)
    ' This function prints values in the table or DataView.
    Console.WriteLine("\n" + label)
    Dim row As DataRow
    Dim column As DataColumn
    For Each row In table.Rows
        For Each column In table.Columns
            Console.Write("\table{0}", row(column))
        Next column
    Next row
    Console.WriteLine()
End Sub
