DataSet.Copy Method

Definition

Copies both the structure and data for this DataSet.

public:
 System::Data::DataSet ^ Copy();
public System.Data.DataSet Copy ();
member this.Copy : unit -> System.Data.DataSet
Public Function Copy () As DataSet

Returns

A new DataSet with the same structure (table schemas, relations, and constraints) and data as this DataSet.


If these classes have been subclassed, the copy will also be of the same subclasses.

Examples

The following example uses the Copy method to create a copy of the original DataSet.

private void CopyDataSet(DataSet dataSet)
{
    // Create an object variable for the copy.
    DataSet copyDataSet;
    copyDataSet = dataSet.Copy();

    // Insert code to work with the copy.
}
Private Sub CopyDataSet(ByVal dataSet As DataSet )
    ' Create an object variable for the copy.
    Dim copyDataSet As DataSet = dataSet.Copy()

    ' Insert code to work with the copy.
End Sub
