Using dataview Rowfilter

Hi Guys

I have a 2 column table containing vehicleid's and descriptions.
I wish to filter out a single set of rows using the VehicleId.
The table will typically contain 6 rows per vehicleId and
upwards of 500 distinct vehicles therfore about 3000 rows approx.
The reason the table contains 6 rows per vehicleId is because it contains name/value information pairs about the vehicle.

My question is;
When using the DataView.Rowfilter method
- does setting a primary key column have any effect upon the filter,
i.e. Will it improve the filters speed or is it completely unnecessary ?

Many thanks.
___________
‘Get all vehicles.
‘returns 2 columns: VehicleId, Descr
Dim dt as datatable = GetVehicleData()

‘Create a primary key column.
Dim PriKeyCol() As DataColumn = Nothing
ReDim PriKeyCol(1)

'Sets primary key for the table.
PriKeyCol(0) = dt.Columns.Item("VehicleId")
dt.PrimaryKey = PriKeyCol

dv.RowFilter = String.Concat("VehicleId=", VehicleId)
Dim dtVehicleDetails As DataTable = dv.ToTable

‘Bind dtVehicleDetails to some user interface control.

Before filtering the data typically looks like this:
1, VehicleMakeModel
1, VehicleEngineSize
1, VehicleFuelType
1, VehicleSeatsCapacity
1, VehicleColour
1, VehicleRego

2, VehicleMakeModel
2, VehicleEngineSize
2, VehicleFuelType
2, VehicleSeatsCapacity
2, VehicleColour
2, VehicleRego

Hello kevin,

I dont think having a primary key will increase performance during filter

because you are using disconnected Architecture, setting primary key will not impact on filtration.
