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

public int IndexOf (
	DataTable table
)
public int IndexOf (
	DataTable table
)
public function IndexOf (
	table : DataTable
) : int

Parameters

table

The DataTable to search for.

Return Value

The zero-based index of the table, or -1 if the table is not found in the collection.

Use the IndexOf method to determine the exact index of a given table.

Before calling IndexOf, you can test for the existence of a table (specified by either index or name) by using the Contains method.

The following example returns the index of each table in the DataTableCollection.

private void GetIndexes()
{
    // Get the DataSet of a DataGrid.
    DataSet thisDataSet = (DataSet)DataGrid1.DataSource;

    // Get the DataTableCollection through the Tables property.
    DataTableCollection tables = thisDataSet.Tables;

    // Get the index of each table in the collection.
    foreach (DataTable table in tables)
        System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(tables.IndexOf(table));
