DataRow.SetColumnError Method (String, String)

Sets the error description for a column specified by name.

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

public void SetColumnError(
	string columnName,
	string error
)

Parameters

columnName
Type: System.String

The name of the column.

error
Type: System.String

The error description.

The name of a column is set with the ColumnName property of the DataColumn class.

To examine error descriptions, use the GetColumnError method.

To determine whether any errors exist for the columns collection, use the HasErrors property. Consequently, you can use the GetColumnsInError method to retrieve all the columns with errors.

If null or an empty string is passed in as the error parameter, the DataRow behaves as if no error was set and the HasErrors property will return false.

To set a custom error description on the whole row, use the RowError property.

To determine whether any errors exist for the columns collection, use the HasErrors method.

To clear all errors for the columns collection, use the ClearErrors method.

The following example sets an error description for a specified DataRow.

private void SetColError(DataRow row, int columnIndex)
{
    string errorString = "Replace this text.";

    // Set the error for the specified column of the row.
    row.SetColumnError(columnIndex, errorString);
}

private void PrintColError(DataRow row, int columnIndex)
{
    // Print the error of a specified column.
    Console.WriteLine(row.GetColumnError(columnIndex));
}
