Set DataReader From Cache

I'm working with a third party tool that needs to be provided with an instance of IDataReader for a specific call.  THis has been working fine, but now I have a situation where the data I need to pass to the method is not coming from a database, but is effectively cached in the application.  So I have a List of Dictionary<string, Object> items that needs to be put into a DataReader.

Is there any way to do this?  Can I somehow point a Connection.DataSource to a C# object, maybe a DataTable?

Can you load the data in your Dictionary to a DataTable? The DataTable object has a "CreateDataReader()" method that returns an IDataReader for the rows in that table.

Otherwise, you can implement the IDataReader interface in a new class that feeds data from a Dictionary object.

CreateDataReader() is what I was looking for.  Thx.
