I need to be able to find the index of a particular row.  I have the follwoing code:

    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)
        TotalRowCount = DR.Table.Rows.Count
        LoadControlData()

    End Sub

Open in new window


How can I find the index of a datarow.  I want to allow my users to navigate, similar to a datacontrol with bound controls.

Based on what information do you want the index ? What do  you want to do with it ?

If you search through the primary key:

Well, I figured out a method to accomplilsh my goal.  As soon as the for loads that displays the data from the first row, I set a Module level variable to 0.   Then when a next or previous button is pressed, I just increment and decrement the currently displayed row index.  Then set that new index to the module level variable.  works great.  Thanks for the quick response!
