public bool IsPrimaryKey { get; 
/** @property */
public boolean get_IsPrimaryKey ()

public function get IsPrimaryKey () : boolean

Property Value

true, if the constraint is on a primary key; otherwise, false.

A table usually includes a primary key that ensures every row is unique. In some tables, the primary key may be made up of more than one column. For example, a primary key for a table containing names might be made up of both the first and last names as well. To create a primary key with more than one column, set the Columns property to an array of DataColumn objects.

The following example checks the IsPrimaryKey property.

Private Sub GetPrimaryKey()
    Dim dataRelation As DataRelation
    Dim uniqueConstraint As UniqueConstraint

    ' Get a DataRelation from a DataSet.
    dataRelation = DataSet1.Relations("CustomerOrders")

    ' Get the ParentKeyConstraint.
    uniqueConstraint = dataRelation.ParentKeyConstraint

    ' Test if the IsPrimaryKey is true.
    If uniqueConstraint.IsPrimaryKey Then
    End If
 End Sub
