The DesignerDataTableBase 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 DesignerDataTableBase class provides the properties and methods shared between data tables in a data store and views defined on those data tables.

When you inherit from the DesignerDataTableBase class, you must override the CreateColumns method.
