Public Enumeration MappingType

Member nameDescription
Attribute

The column is mapped to an XML attribute.

Element

The column is mapped to an XML element.

Hidden

The column is mapped to an internal structure.

SimpleContent

The column is mapped to an XmlText node.

The MappingType enumeration is used when getting or setting the ColumnMapping property of the DataColumn. The property determines how a column's values will be written when the WriteXml method is called on a DataSet to write the data and schema out as an XML document.

The following example returns the ColumnMapping property value for each column in a table.

Private Sub GetColumnMapping(ByVal dataTable As DataTable)
    Dim dataColumn As DataColumn
    For Each dataColumn In dataTable.Columns
        Console.WriteLine(dataColumn.ColumnMapping.ToString())
    Next dataColumn
End Sub
