Hi,

How do I modify the code in Part A below to pass values such as NSN, NSC to replace Row?  For example, when I press button_Row I use the code below in Part A, but when I press button_NSC, I would like to pass NSC to the code in part B where XXX is located

Part A

 Dim dtlink As New DataTable
        dtlink.Columns.Add("BM")
        Dim linker As XElement = XElement.Load(Application.StartupPath + "\Row.xml")
        For Each item As XElement In linker.Elements("Row")
            Dim NSNIDA As String = item.Element("BM").Value
            Dim drLink As DataRow = dtlink.NewRow()
            drLink("BM") = NSNIDA
            dtlink.Rows.Add(drLink)
        Next
        Dim DV As New DataView(dtlink, "BM not like ''", Nothing, DataViewRowState.CurrentRows)
        Dim FilteredDT As DataTable
        FilteredDT = DV.ToTable
        C1TrueDBGrid3.DataSource = dtlink.DefaultView.ToTable(True, New String() {"BM"})


Part B

Private Sub SearchFile()
 Dim dtlink As New DataTable
        dtlink.Columns.Add("XXX")
        Dim linker As XElement = XElement.Load(Application.StartupPath + "\XXX.xml")
        For Each item As XElement In linker.Elements("XXX")
            Dim NSNIDA As String = item.Element("XXX").Value
            Dim drLink As DataRow = dtlink.NewRow()
            drLink("XXX") = NSNIDA
            dtlink.Rows.Add(drLink)
        Next
        Dim DV As New DataView(dtlink, "XXX not like ''", Nothing, DataViewRowState.CurrentRows)
        Dim FilteredDT As DataTable
        FilteredDT = DV.ToTable
        C1TrueDBGrid3.DataSource = dtlink.DefaultView.ToTable(True, New String() {"BM"})
End Sub


Dim XXX as string

ButtonRow click event

XXX = "Row"
SearchFile()


ButtonNSC click event

XXX = "NSC"
SearchFile()


Thanks


Victor

change your searchfile subroutine to accept a string.

Private Sub SearchFile(strValue As String)
    dtlink.Columns.Add(strValue)
End Sub

buttonNSC Click event
SeachFile("NSC")

Hi,

In two locations in my code below I also need to pass values of another variable, (i.e. YYY), how do I modify the code to also include values for YYY?

Private Sub SearchFile()
 Dim dtlink As New DataTable
        dtlink.Columns.Add("XXX")
        Dim linker As XElement = XElement.Load(Application.StartupPath + "\YYY.xml")
        For Each item As XElement In linker.Elements("YYY")
            Dim NSNIDA As String = item.Element("XXX").Value
            Dim drLink As DataRow = dtlink.NewRow()
            drLink("XXX") = NSNIDA
            dtlink.Rows.Add(drLink)
        Next
        Dim DV As New DataView(dtlink, "XXX not like ''", Nothing, DataViewRowState.CurrentRows)
        Dim FilteredDT As DataTable
        FilteredDT = DV.ToTable
        C1TrueDBGrid3.DataSource = dtlink.DefaultView.ToTable(True, New String() {XXX})
End Sub



Thanks,

Victor

You can do the same thing.  You can pass multiple values into a subroutine

SearchFile(strValue1 As String, strValue2 As String)

SeachFile("XXX","YYY")

Open in new window
