I'm using the following code, which seems to work fine, but is there a way to address a datarow column/field by its name, instead of by its column index value?

    Private Sub frmPermitEdit_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        StatusBarNavInfo = "Displaying 1 of " & RecordCount & " permits found"
        StatusBar.Items(0).Text = StatusBarNavInfo

        SQLConn = New SqlConnection(SQLConnString)
        SQLConn.Open()
        SQLAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter(strSQL, SQLConn)
        dTable = New DataTable
        SQLAdapter.Fill(dTable)

        DR = dTable.Rows(0)
        Me.txtPermitNo.Text = DR.Item(0)
    End Sub

Open in new window


I guess I could map some contant integers against the fiield name like:

Public Const PermitNo As Integer = 0

but is there another  easier/direct way?

You can use regular string-names (columnname)

Me.txtPermitNo.Text = DR.Item("YourField")
