AcceptRejectRule Enumeration

Determines the action that occurs when the AcceptChanges or RejectChanges method is invoked on a DataTable with a ForeignKeyConstraint.

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

Public Enumeration AcceptRejectRule
Dim instance As AcceptRejectRule

Member nameDescription
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkSupported by the XNA FrameworkNoneNo action occurs (default).
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkSupported by the XNA FrameworkCascadeChanges are cascaded across the relationship.

Changes to a DataTable are not final until you call the AcceptChanges method. When either AcceptChanges or RejectChanges is called on a row in the parent table, the AcceptRejectRule value determines whether or not changes are propagated to corresponding rows in the child table.

The following example creates a ForeignKeyConstraint, sets various of its properties, including the AcceptRejectRule, and adds it to a DataTable object's ConstraintCollection.

Private Sub CreateConstraint(dataSet As DataSet, _
   table1 As String, table2 As String, _
   column1 As String, column2 As String)

   ' Declare parent column and child column variables. 
   Dim parentColumn As DataColumn
   Dim childColumn As DataColumn
   Dim foreignKeyConstraint As ForeignKeyConstraint

   ' Set parent and child column variables.
   parentColumn = dataSet.Tables(table1).Columns(column1)
   childColumn = dataSet.Tables(table2).Columns(column2)
   foreignKeyConstraint = New ForeignKeyConstraint _
      ("SupplierForeignKeyConstraint", parentColumn, childColumn)

   ' Set null values when a value is deleted.
   foreignKeyConstraint.DeleteRule = Rule.SetNull
   foreignKeyConstraint.UpdateRule = Rule.Cascade
   foreignKeyConstraint.AcceptRejectRule = AcceptRejectRule.None

   ' Add the constraint, and set EnforceConstraints to true.
   dataSet.EnforceConstraints = True 
End Sub
