[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example adds a handler for the the ListChanged event of a DataView.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub CreateDataView(dt As DataTable) 
  Dim dv As DataView = New DataView(dt, "", "ContactName", DataViewRowState.CurrentRows)

  AddHandler dv.ListChanged, New System.ComponentModel.ListChangedEventHandler(AddressOf OnListChanged)
End Sub

Protected Sub OnListChanged(sender as Object, args As System.ComponentModel.ListChangedEventArgs)
  Console.WriteLine(vbTab & "    Type = " & args.ListChangedType)
  Console.WriteLine(vbTab & "OldIndex = " & args.OldIndex)
  Console.WriteLine(vbTab & "NewIndex = " & args.NewIndex)
End Sub

public void CreateDataView(DataTable dt) 
  DataView dv = new DataView(dt, "", "ContactName", DataViewRowState.CurrentRows);

  dv.ListChanged  += new System.ComponentModel.ListChangedEventHandler(OnListChanged);

protected void OnListChanged(object sender, System.ComponentModel.ListChangedEventArgs args)
  Console.WriteLine("\t    Type = " + args.ListChangedType);
  Console.WriteLine("\tOldIndex = " + args.OldIndex);
  Console.WriteLine("\tNewIndex = " + args.NewIndex);

    void CreateDataView(DataTable* dt)
    DataView* dv = new DataView(dt, S"", S"ContactName", DataViewRowState::CurrentRows);
    dv->ListChanged += new System::ComponentModel::ListChangedEventHandler(this, &Sample::OnListChanged);

    void OnListChanged(Object* sender, System::ComponentModel::ListChangedEventArgs* args)
    Console::WriteLine(S"\t    Type = {0}", __box(args->ListChangedType));
    Console::WriteLine(S"\tOldIndex = {0}", __box(args->OldIndex));
    Console::WriteLine(S"\tNewIndex = {0}", __box(args->NewIndex));
