-Or-

The column is part of a relationship.

Another column's expression depends on this column.

Examples

The following example uses the Contains method to determine whether a named column exists. If so, the Item[String] property returns the column. The CanRemove method then checks whether the column can be removed; if so, the Remove method removes it.

   private void TestAndRemove(DataColumn colToRemove)
   {
       DataColumnCollection columns; 
       // Get the DataColumnCollection from a DataTable in a DataSet.
       columns = DataSet1.Tables["Orders"].Columns;

       if(columns.Contains(colToRemove.ColumnName))
       {
           columns.Remove(colToRemove);
       }
   }
Private Sub TestAndRemove(ByVal colToRemove As DataColumn)
    ' Get the DataColumnCollection from a DataTable in a DataSet.
    Dim columns As DataColumnCollection = _
        DataSet1.Tables("Orders").Columns
 
    If columns.Contains(colToRemove.ColumnName) Then
       columns.Remove(colToRemove)
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

If the collection is successfully changed by adding or removing columns, the CollectionChanged event occurs.

Examples

The following example first uses the Contains method to determine whether a particular column is found in the collection. If it is found, the CanRemove method tests whether the column can be removed. If so, the column is removed with the Remove method.

private void RemoveColumnByName(string columnName)
{
    // Get the DataColumnCollection from a DataTable in a DataSet.
    DataColumnCollection columns = 
        ds.Tables["Suppliers"].Columns;

    if(columns.Contains(columnName))
        if(columns.CanRemove(columns[columnName])) 
            columns.Remove(columnName);
}
Private Sub RemoveColumnByName(columnName As String)

    ' Get the DataColumnCollection from a DataTable in a DataSet.
    Dim columns As DataColumnCollection = _
        DataSet1.Tables("Orders").Columns

    If columns.Contains(columnName) Then 
        If columns.CanRemove(columns(columnName)) Then 
            columns.Remove(columnName)
        End If
    End If
 End Sub

Remarks

If the collection is successfully changed by adding or removing columns, the CollectionChanged event occurs.
