IDataRecord.GetValues Method

Gets all the attribute fields in the collection for the current record.

[Visual Basic]
Function GetValues( _
   ByVal values() As Object _
) As Integer
int GetValues(
   object[] values
int GetValues(
   Object* values __gc[]
function GetValues(
   values : Object[]
) : int;


An array of Object to copy the attribute fields into.

Return Value

The number of instances of Object in the array.


For most applications, the GetValues method provides an efficient means for retrieving all columns, rather than retrieving each column individually.

You can pass an Object array that contains fewer than the number of columns contained in the resulting row. Only the amount of data the Object array holds is copied to the array. You can also pass an Object array whose length is more than the number of columns contained in the resulting row.
