SqlCeResultSet.ReadFirst Method

Positions the reader at the first record in the ResultSet.

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

public bool ReadFirst()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
True if the operation succeeded; otherwise, false.

The following example creates a ResultSet object and then calls several methods, including ReadFirst.

SqlCeConnection conn = null;

try
{
    File.Delete("Test.sdf");

    SqlCeEngine engine = new SqlCeEngine("Data Source = Test.sdf");
    engine.CreateDatabase();

    conn = new SqlCeConnection("Data Source = Test.sdf");
    conn.Open();

    SqlCeCommand cmd = conn.CreateCommand();
    cmd.CommandText = "CREATE TABLE myTable (col1 INT)";
    cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

    cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM myTable";

    SqlCeResultSet rs = cmd.ExecuteResultSet(ResultSetOptions.Updatable | 
        ResultSetOptions.Scrollable);

    SqlCeUpdatableRecord rec = rs.CreateRecord();

    // Insert 10 records
    //
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
    {
        rec.SetInt32(0, i);
        rs.Insert(rec);
    }

    // Scroll through the results
    //
    if (true == rs.ReadFirst())
    {
        MessageBox.Show("col1 = " + rs.GetInt32(0 /*ordinal*/));
    }

    if (true == rs.ReadRelative(5))
    {
        MessageBox.Show("col1 = " + rs.GetInt32(0 /*ordinal*/));
    }

    if (true == rs.ReadLast())
    {
        MessageBox.Show("col1 = " + rs.GetInt32(0 /*ordinal*/));
    }

    if (true == rs.ReadPrevious())
    {
        MessageBox.Show("col1 = " + rs.GetInt32(0 /*ordinal*/));
    }

    if (true == rs.ReadAbsolute(5))
    {
        MessageBox.Show("col1 = " + rs.GetInt32(0 /*ordinal*/));
    }
}
catch (Exception e)
{
    MessageBox.Show(e.Message);
}
finally
{
    conn.Close();
}
