DataRowCollection.Remove Method

Removes the specified DataRow from the collection.

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

public void Remove(
	DataRow row
)

Parameters

row
Type: System.Data.DataRow

The DataRow to remove.

When a row is removed, all data in that row is lost. You can also call the Delete method of the DataRow class to just mark a row for removal. Calling Remove is the same as calling Delete and then calling AcceptChanges.

You can also use the Clear method to remove all members of the collection at one time.

The following example uses the Remove method to delete a found row in a DataRowCollection object. The example first uses the Contains method to determine whether the rows collection contains a row. If it does, the Find method is used to find the specific row, and the Remove method is then used to remove the row.

Private Sub RemoveFoundRow(ByVal table As DataTable)
    Dim rowCollection As DataRowCollection = table.Rows

    ' Test to see if the collection contains the value. 
    If rowCollection.Contains(TextBox1.Text) Then 
        Dim foundRow As DataRow = rowCollection.Find(TextBox1.Text)
        rowCollection.Remove(foundRow)
        Console.WriteLine("Row Deleted")
    Else
        Console.WriteLine("No such row found.")
    End If 
 End Sub
