Definition

Sets the error description for a column.

Overloads

SetColumnError(DataColumn, String) SetColumnError(DataColumn, String) SetColumnError(DataColumn, String) SetColumnError(DataColumn, String)

Sets the error description for a column specified as a DataColumn.

SetColumnError(Int32, String) SetColumnError(Int32, String) SetColumnError(Int32, String) SetColumnError(Int32, String)

Sets the error description for a column specified by index.

SetColumnError(String, String) SetColumnError(String, String) SetColumnError(String, String) SetColumnError(String, String)

Sets the error description for a column specified by name.

SetColumnError(DataColumn, String) SetColumnError(DataColumn, String) SetColumnError(DataColumn, String) SetColumnError(DataColumn, String)

Sets the error description for a column specified as a DataColumn.

public:
 void SetColumnError(System::Data::DataColumn ^ column, System::String ^ error);
public void SetColumnError (System.Data.DataColumn column, string error);
member this.SetColumnError : System.Data.DataColumn * string -> unit
Public Sub SetColumnError (column As DataColumn, error As String)

Parameters

column
DataColumn DataColumn DataColumn DataColumn

The DataColumn to set the error description for.

error
String String String String

The error description.

Examples

The following example sets an error description for a specified DataRow.

private void SetColError(DataRow row, int columnIndex)
{
    string errorString = "Replace this text.";

    // Set the error for the specified column of the row.
    row.SetColumnError(columnIndex, errorString);
}

private void PrintColError(DataRow row, int columnIndex)
{
    // Print the error of a specified column.
    Console.WriteLine(row.GetColumnError(columnIndex));
}
Private Sub SetColError(ByVal row As DataRow, _
    byVal columnIndex As Integer)
    Dim errorString As String = "Replace this text."

    ' Set the error for the specified column of the row.
    row.SetColumnError(columnIndex, errorString)
End Sub
 
Private Sub PrintColError( _
    ByVal row As DataRow, byVal columnIndex As Integer)

    ' Print the error of a specified column.
    Console.WriteLine(row.GetColumnError(columnIndex))
End Sub

Remarks

To examine error descriptions, use the GetColumnError method.

To determine whether any errors exist for the columns collection, use the HasErrors property. Consequently, you can use the GetColumnsInError method to retrieve all the columns with errors.

If null or an empty string is passed in as the error parameter, the DataRow behaves as if no error was set and the HasErrors property will return false.

To set a custom error description on the whole row, use the RowError property.

To determine whether any errors exist for the columns collection, use the HasErrors method.

To clear all errors for the columns collection, use the ClearErrors method.

Remarks

The method is used to set custom error descriptions on specified columns. You can use the ErrorProvider control to display the text of the error.

To examine error descriptions, use the GetColumnError method.

To determine whether any errors exist for the columns collection, use the HasErrors property. Consequently, you can use the GetColumnsInError method to retrieve all the columns with errors.

If null or an empty string is passed in as the error parameter, the DataRow behaves as if no error was set and the HasErrors property will return false.

To set a custom error description on the whole row, use the RowError property.
