DataColumnCollection::Item Property (String^)

 

Gets the DataColumn from the collection with the specified name.

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

public:
property DataColumn^ default[
	String^ name
] {
	DataColumn^ get(String^ name);
}

Parameters

name
Type: System::String^

The ColumnName of the column to return.

Property Value

Type: System.Data::DataColumn^

The DataColumn in the collection with the specified ColumnName; otherwise a null value if the DataColumn does not exist.

Item is conditionally case-sensitive when it searches for column names. For example, if one DataColumn is named "mydatacolumn" and another is named "Mydatacolumn", a string used to search for one of the columns is regarded as case-sensitive. However, if "mydatacolumn" exists and "Mydatacolumn" does not, the search string is regarded as case-insensitive.

The following example uses the Item property to print the DataType value of a DataColumn object specified by index.
