Public Sub New (
	columnName As String
)

Parameters

columnName

A string that represents the name of the column to be created. If set to null or an empty string (""), a default name will be specified when added to the columns collection.

By default, the name specific to a column becomes the Caption property value.

The following example creates a new DataColumn with a specified ColumnName.


Private Sub AddDataColumn(ByVal table As DataTable)
    Dim column As DataColumn 
    column = New DataColumn("id")

    ' Set various properties.
    With column
       .DataType = System.Type.GetType("System.Int32")
       .AutoIncrement = True
       .AutoIncrementSeed = 1
       .AutoIncrementStep = 1
       .ReadOnly = True
     End With

    ' Add to Columns collection.
    table.Columns.Add(column)
End Sub
