For a list of all members of this type, see DataTableMapping Members.

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.


A DataTableMapping provides a master mapping between the data returned from a query against a data source, and a DataTable. The DataTableMapping name can be passed in place of the DataTable name to the Fill method of the DataAdapter. For more information, see Setting Up DataTable and DataColumn Mappings.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates a DataTableMapping object and adds it to a DataTableMappingCollection. It then informs the user that the mapping was added to the collection and displays the parent mapping.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub AddDataTableMapping()
    ' ...
    ' create myTableMappings
    ' ...
    Dim myNewMapping As New DataTableMapping("Categories", "DataCategories")
    myTableMappings.Add(CType(myNewMapping, Object))
    MessageBox.Show("Table " + myNewMapping.ToString() + " added to " _
       + "table mapping collection " + myTableMappings.ToString())
End Sub

public void AddDataTableMapping() {
   // ...
   // create myTableMappings
   // ...
   DataTableMapping myNewMapping =
      new DataTableMapping("Categories","DataCategories");
   myTableMappings.Add((Object) myNewMapping);
   MessageBox.Show("Table " + myNewMapping.ToString() + " added to " +
      "table mapping collection " + myTableMappings.ToString());

void AddDataTableMapping() {
   // ...
   // create myTableMappings
   // ...
   DataTableMapping* myNewMapping =
      new DataTableMapping(S"Categories",S"DataCategories");
   MessageBox::Show(String::Concat( S"Table ", myNewMapping->ToString(), S" added to ",
      S"table mapping collection ", myTableMappings->ToString() ));
