Question about working with single row in datatable?

What is the appropriate way to read data from a single row in a datatable.

I have a dataset table adapter that returns a single row.

In a situation where I needed to work through multiple rows I would do a

foreach (DataRow r1 in areaDT)

Is that the correct way to pull data from a single row or is there a more efficeint way to do it when you know its only a si ngle row returned?

Hi,

I would just use a similar setting to below, if you can guarantee that the dataAdapter will only ever return one row.


datarow myOneRow = datatableAdapterGetMyOneRow();  //assuming the method only returns a dataRow and not a dataRow[]!!

string example = myOneRow["NameForInstance"].toString();

I dont know of any other way you could deal with a dataRow
