The DesignerDataTable class is one of several types that represent the schema of a data store at design-time. These schema items are made available to controls by designers implementing the IDataEnvironment interface. Controls access schema objects by calling the GetConnectionSchema method of the interface.

The DesignerDataTable class represents a single table in the data store. A collection of DesignerDataTable objects is returned when you call the GetSchemaItems method with the schemaClass parameter set to DesignerDataSchemaClass.Tables.


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