Assembly: System.Data (in System.Data.dll)
The interface enables an inheriting class to implement a Column Mapping class, which associates a data source column with a DataSet column. For more information, see DataAdapter DataTable and DataColumn Mappings (ADO.NET).
An application does not create an instance of the interface directly, but creates an instance of a class that inherits .
Classes that inherit must implement all inherited members, and typically define additional members to add provider-specific functionality. For example, the interface defines the DataSetColumn property. In turn, the DataColumnMapping class inherits this property, and also defines the GetDataColumnBySchemaAction method.Notes to Implementers:
When you inherit from the interface, you should implement the following constructors:
Initializes a new instance of the ColumnMapping class.
ColumnMapping(string sourceColumn, string dataSetColumn)
Initializes a new instance of the ColumnMapping class with a source with the specified source column name and DataSet column name.
The following example creates an instance of the derived class, DataColumnMapping, and adds it to a DataColumnMappingCollection collection. It then tells the user that the mapping was added to the collection and shows the parent for the mapping.
