If you use e.g. DataAdapter with a DataTable, and want to filll a dropdown list with DataTable's column names you do something like:

            //e.g.: DataTable tbl = new DataTable();

            foreach (DataColumn col in tbl.Columns)
            {
                dropdownlist.Items.Add(col.ColumnName);
            }
