Remarks

Use the Keys property to access the values of the key fields (as specified by the DataKeyNames property) for a deleted record. For example, you can use these values to keep a log of deleted records.

Note

This property contains only the key fields. To access the non-key fields, use the Values property.

The Keys property returns an object that implements the System.Collections.Specialized.IOrderedDictionary interface. The object contains System.Collections.DictionaryEntry objects that represent the key fields of the deleted record.
