Remarks

Use the NewValues property (dictionary) to access the values of the revised non-key fields in the row to update.

Note

The primary key field or fields are not included in this dictionary. To access the values of the primary key field or fields, use the Keys property. To access the original values of the non-key fields in the row, use the OldValues property.

The NewValues property is automatically populated with the name/value pairs of the revised non-key fields in the row. A separate entry is added to the NewValues property for each non-key field in the row.

To determine the field name of an entry, use the DictionaryEntry.Key property of a System.Collections.DictionaryEntry object contained in the NewValues dictionary. To determine the value of an entry, use the DictionaryEntry.Value property.
