] {
	virtual Object^ get(String^ name) override;


Type: System::String^

The name of the column.

Property Value

Type: System::Object^

The value of the specified column in its native format.

Exception Condition

The name specified is not a valid column name.


An attempt was made to retrieve data from a deleted row.


An attempt was made to read or access a column in a closed DataTableReader.

A case-sensitive lookup is performed first. If it fails, a second case-insensitive search is made.

This method is kana-width insensitive.

This overloaded version of M:System.Data.DataTableReader.Item corresponds to calling the M:System.Data.DataTableReader.GetOrdinal method, and then subsequently calling the GetValue method.

Given a DataTableReader and a column name, the GetValueByName procedure returns the value of the specified column. Before calling this procedure, you must create a new DataTableReader instance and call its Read method at least one time to position the row pointer on a row of data.
