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

Public Overridable Property ConstraintName As String

Property Value

Type: System.String

The name of the Constraint.

Exception Condition

The Constraint name is a null value or empty string.


The ConstraintCollection already contains a Constraint with the same name (The comparison is not case-sensitive.).

The ConstraintCollection is returned by the Constraints property of the DataTable class.

The following example iterates through the ConstraintCollection of a DataTable and prints each ConstraintName.

Private Sub PrintConstraintNames(myTable As DataTable)
    Dim cs As Constraint
    For Each cs In  myTable.Constraints
    Next cs
End Sub
