Fields

Added Added Added Added 4

A new row.

CurrentRows CurrentRows CurrentRows CurrentRows 22

Current rows including unchanged, new, and modified rows. By default, DataViewRowState is set to CurrentRows.

Deleted Deleted Deleted Deleted 8

A deleted row.

ModifiedCurrent ModifiedCurrent ModifiedCurrent ModifiedCurrent 16

A current version of original data that has been modified (see ModifiedOriginal).

ModifiedOriginal ModifiedOriginal ModifiedOriginal ModifiedOriginal 32

The original version of the data that was modified. (Although the data has since been modified, it is available as ModifiedCurrent).

None None None None 0

Unchanged Unchanged Unchanged Unchanged 2

An unchanged row.

Examples

In the following example DataTable is created with a single column. The data is changed, and the RowStateFilter of the DataView is set to display different row sets, depending on the DataViewRowState.

static private void DemonstrateRowState()
{
    // Create a DataTable with one column.
    DataTable dataTable = new DataTable("dataTable");
    DataColumn dataColumn = new DataColumn("dataColumn");
    dataTable.Columns.Add(dataColumn);

    // Add ten rows.
    DataRow dataRow;
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
    {
        dataRow = dataTable.NewRow();
        dataRow["dataColumn"] = "item " + i;
        dataTable.Rows.Add(dataRow);
    }
    dataTable.AcceptChanges();

    // Create a DataView with the table.
    DataView dataView = new DataView(dataTable);

    // Change one row's value:
    dataTable.Rows[1]["dataColumn"] = "Hello";

    // Add one row:
    dataRow = dataTable.NewRow();
    dataRow["dataColumn"] = "World";
    dataTable.Rows.Add(dataRow);

    // Set the RowStateFilter to display only added and modified rows.
    dataView.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.Added
        | DataViewRowState.ModifiedCurrent;

    // Print those rows. Output = "Hello" "World";
    PrintView(dataView, "ModifiedCurrent and Added");

    // Set filter to display on originals of modified rows.
    dataView.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.ModifiedOriginal;
    PrintView(dataView, "ModifiedOriginal");

    // Delete three rows.
    dataTable.Rows[1].Delete();
    dataTable.Rows[2].Delete();
    dataTable.Rows[3].Delete();

    // Set the RowStateFilter to display only Added and modified rows.
    dataView.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.Deleted;
    PrintView(dataView, "Deleted");

    //Set filter to display only current.
    dataView.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.CurrentRows;
    PrintView(dataView, "Current");

    // Set filter to display only unchanged rows.
    dataView.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.Unchanged;
    PrintView(dataView, "Unchanged");

    // Set filter to display only original rows.
    dataView.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.OriginalRows;
    PrintView(dataView, "OriginalRows");
}

    For i = 0 To 9
        dataRow = dataTable.NewRow()

Private Sub PrintView(ByVal dataView As DataView, ByVal label As String)
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + label)

    For i = 0 To dataView.Count - 1
        Console.WriteLine(dataView(i)("dataColumn"))
    Next i
End Sub

Remarks

The DataViewRowState values are used either to retrieve a particular version of data from a DataRow, or to determine what versions exist.

Set the RowStateFilter property of the DataView to specify which version or versions of data you want to view.

You can use the Boolean operator Or with the values to get more than one version.

The DataTable uses DataViewRowState in the Select method.
