C# code to drilldown DataSet with multiple tables with relationships

Hello. I need a quick solution for drilling down a DataSet that I have filled from an XML file using the ReadXML method. I am in a bit of hurry - so I was hoping someone had a code snippet that does this using the DataGridView (or something else that does the trick) where I can adapt it to my specs.

The DataSet content is ready. I just need to be able to drill it down. It can be with another language. I can change it to C# myself :-) Thanx.,

Try this
if(dataset.Tables.Count>0 && dataset.Tables[0].Rows.Count>0)
  foreach(DataRow dr in dataset.Tables[0].Rows)

Open in new window

in my viewpoint the best approach for implementing a drill down in a data set is by using datarelations between the master and child detail tables

when a particular record is selected then all the rows in different tables can be easily fetched from relations which is the best way to go
