DataTableMappingCollection.GetTableMappingBySchemaAction Method

Gets a DataColumnMapping object with the specified source table name and DataSet table name, using the given MissingMappingAction.

[Visual Basic]
Public Shared Function GetTableMappingBySchemaAction( _
   ByVal tableMappings As DataTableMappingCollection, _
   ByVal sourceTable As String, _
   ByVal dataSetTable As String, _
   ByVal mappingAction As MissingMappingAction _
) As DataTableMapping
public static DataTableMapping GetTableMappingBySchemaAction(
 DataTableMappingCollection tableMappings,
 string sourceTable,
 string dataSetTable,
 MissingMappingAction mappingAction
public: static DataTableMapping* GetTableMappingBySchemaAction(
 DataTableMappingCollection* tableMappings,
 String* sourceTable,
 String* dataSetTable,
 MissingMappingAction mappingAction
public static function GetTableMappingBySchemaAction(
   tableMappings : DataTableMappingCollection,
 sourceTable : String,
 dataSetTable : String,
 mappingAction : MissingMappingAction
) : DataTableMapping;


The DataTableMappingCollection collection to search.
The case-sensitive name of the mapped source table.
The name, which is not case-sensitive, of the mapped DataSet table.
One of the MissingMappingAction values.

Return Value

A DataTableMapping object.


Exception Type Condition
InvalidOperationException The mappingAction parameter was set to Error, and no mapping was specified.


If the DataTableMapping exists in the collection, it is returned.

If the DataTableMapping does not exist in the collection for a given MissingMappingAction, the following happens:

MissingMappingAction Action Taken
Passthrough Creates a DataTableMapping object with the given sourceTable as the source table name and dataSetTable as the DataSet table name. The created DataTableMapping object is not added to the collection.
Error An exception is generated. The dataSetTable parameter is ignored.
Ignore Gets a a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) value. The dataSetTable parameter is ignored.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example searches for a DataTableMapping with the given source table name within the collection. If the object exists, it is returned. The example assumes that a DataTableMappingCollection collection and a DataTableMapping object have been created.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub FindDataTableMapping()
    ' ...
    ' create myTableMappings and myNewMapping
    ' ...
    If myTableMappings.Contains("Categories") Then
        myNewMapping = _
           DataTableMappingCollection.GetTableMappingBySchemaAction _
           (myTableMappings, "Categories", "", MissingMappingAction.Ignore)
    End If
End Sub

public void FindDataTableMapping() {
   // ...
   // create myTableMappings and myNewMapping
   // ...
   if (myTableMappings.Contains("Categories")) {
      myNewMapping = DataTableMappingCollection.GetTableMappingBySchemaAction
         (myTableMappings, "Categories", "", MissingMappingAction.Ignore);

void FindDataTableMapping() {
   // ...
   // create myTableMappings and myNewMapping
   // ...
   if (myTableMappings->Contains(S"Categories")) {
       myNewMapping = DataTableMappingCollection::GetTableMappingBySchemaAction
          (myTableMappings, S"Categories", S"", MissingMappingAction::Ignore);
