Gets the DataTable object at the specified index.

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

public DataTable this [
	int index
] { get; 
/** @property */
public DataTable get_Item (int index)

JScript supports the use of indexed properties, but not the declaration of new ones.

Parameters

index

The zero-based index of the DataTable to find.

Property Value

A DataTable.

Exception typeCondition

IndexOutOfRangeException

The index value is greater than the number of items in the collection.

Use the Contains method to determine whether a table with a specific index exists.

If you have the name of a table, but not its index, use the IndexOf method to return the index.

The following example retrieves a DataTable by its index.

private void GetDataTableByIndex()
{
   // presuming a DataGrid is displaying more than one table, get its DataSet.
   DataSet thisDataSet = (DataSet)DataGrid1.DataSource;
   // Get the DataTableCollection.
   DataTableCollection tablesCollection = thisDataSet.Tables;
   // Iterate through the collection to get each table name.
   for (int i = 0; i < tablesCollection.Count; i++)
      Console.WriteLine(tablesCollection[i].TableName);
