The following example uses the RowVersion property to display the DataRowVersion.

Private Sub DemonstrateRowVersion()
    Dim i As Integer
    ' Create a DataTable with one column.
    Dim table As New DataTable("Table")
    Dim column As New DataColumn("Column")

    ' Add ten rows.
    Dim row As DataRow
    For i = 0 To 9
        row = table.NewRow()
        row("Column") = "item " + i.ToString()
    Next i

    ' Create a DataView with the table.
    Dim view As New DataView(table)

    ' Change one row's value:
    table.Rows(1)("Column") = "Hello"

    ' Add one row:
    row = table.NewRow()
    row("Column") = "World"

    ' Set the RowStateFilter to display only added and modified rows.
    view.RowStateFilter = _
       DataViewRowState.Added Or DataViewRowState.ModifiedCurrent

    ' Print those rows. Output includes "Hello" and "World".
    PrintView(view, "ModifiedCurrent and Added")

    ' Set filter to display only originals of modified rows.
    view.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.ModifiedOriginal
    PrintView(view, "ModifiedOriginal")

    ' Delete three rows.

    ' Set the RowStateFilter to display only deleted rows.
    view.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.Deleted
    PrintView(view, "Deleted")

    ' Set filter to display only current rows.
    view.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.CurrentRows
    PrintView(view, "Current")

    ' Set filter to display only unchanged rows.
    view.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.Unchanged
    PrintView(view, "Unchanged")

    ' Set filter to display only original rows.
    ' Current values of unmodified rows are also returned.
    view.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.OriginalRows
    PrintView(view, "OriginalRows")
End Sub

Private Sub PrintView(ByVal view As DataView, ByVal label As String)
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + label)
    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 0 To view.Count - 1
        Console.WriteLine("DataRowView.RowVersion: {0}", _
    Next i
End Sub
