DataTableReader.Item Property (Int32)

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets the value of the specified column in its native format given the column ordinal.

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

public override Object this [
	int ordinal
] { get; 
/** @property */
public Object get_Item (int ordinal)

JScript supports the use of indexed properties, but not the declaration of new ones.

Parameters

ordinal

The zero-based column ordinal.

Property Value

The value of the specified column in its native format.

Exception typeCondition

IndexOutOfRangeException

The index passed was outside the range of 0 to FieldCount - 1.

This overload for Item behaves identically to the GetValue method.

The following example displays the contents of all the columns, in all the rows from the supplied DataTableReader. The code uses the Item method (the indexer, in Microsoft C#) to retrieve the value that is contained in each column.

private static void DisplayItems(DataTableReader reader)
{
    int rowNumber = 0;
    while (reader.Read())
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Row " + rowNumber);
        for (int i = 0; i < reader.FieldCount; i++)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("{0: {1", reader.GetName(i), reader[i]);
        
        rowNumber++;
