ShouldSerializeRelations Method

DataSet.ShouldSerializeRelations Method

Gets a value indicating whether Relations property should be persisted.

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

'Declaration
Protected Overridable Function ShouldSerializeRelations As Boolean
'Usage
Dim returnValue As Boolean 

returnValue = Me.ShouldSerializeRelations()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the property value has been changed from its default; otherwise false.

You typically use this method if you are either creating a designer for the DataSet, or creating your own control incorporating the DataSet.

The following examples show a class derived from the DataSet class. The Reset and ShouldSerializeRelations methods are invoked from within functions in the derived class.

Public Class DerivedDataSet
    Inherits System.Data.DataSet

    Public Sub ResetDataSetRelations()
        ' Check the ShouldSerializeRelations methods  
        ' before invoking Reset. 
        If Not Me.ShouldSerializeRelations() Then 
            Me.Reset()
        End If 
    End Sub 
End Class
