DataSet.HasChanges Method

Gets a value indicating whether the DataSet has changes, including new, deleted, or modified rows.

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

public bool HasChanges()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the DataSet has changes; otherwise false.

The following example uses the GetChanges method to create a second DataSet object that is then used to update a data source.

private void UpdateDataSet(DataSet dataSet)
{
    // Check for changes with the HasChanges method first. 
    if(!dataSet.HasChanges()) return;

    // Create temporary DataSet variable.
    DataSet tempDataSet;

    // GetChanges for modified rows only.
    tempDataSet = dataSet.GetChanges(DataRowState.Modified);

    // Check the DataSet for errors. 
    if(tempDataSet.HasErrors)
    {
        // Insert code to resolve errors.
    }
    // After fixing errors, update the data source with  
    // the DataAdapter used to create the DataSet.
    myOleDbDataAdapter.Update(tempDataSet);
}
