Hi!

How do I write the loop so I dont manually have to do like this to achieve my result:( There can be 10 rows or 5 rows). I guess it must be something like:



  Dim id As String
        id = CType(sdsView.Table.Rows(0).ItemArray(5), String)
        id = id + CType(sdsView.Table.Rows(1).ItemArray(5), String)
        Label1.Text = id

Open in new window


For Each rowView As DataRowView in sdsView
    Dim row As DataRow = rowView.Row
    ' Do something '
Next

but I cant figure out exactly how



More code-example

Partial Class _13_mobileservice_mobileservice_group
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    Private sdsView As DataView
    Protected Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        sdsView = (CType(SqlDataSource3.Select(DataSourceSelectArguments.Empty), DataView))
        Dim id As String
        id = CType(sdsView.Table.Rows(0).ItemArray(5), String)
        id = id + CType(sdsView.Table.Rows(1).ItemArray(5), String)
        Label1.Text = id
    End Sub

Dim dv As New DataView(New DataTable())
Dim id As String = String.Empty
For Each item As DataRow In dv.Table.Rows
      id = id & Convert.ToString(item.ItemArray)
Next
Label1.Text = id

Hi!

Thanks for fast reply, but the problem is that it now only writs:

System.Object[] (for each record)     instead of the value(s) in the cell.

I probably made a misstake when I tried to use your code in my example.

I changed to this:

Partial Class _13_mobileservice_mobileservice_group
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    'Private sdsView As DataView

   
 Protected Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim dv As New DataView(New DataTable())
        dv = (CType(SqlDataSource3.Select(DataSourceSelectArguments.Empty), DataView))
        Dim id As String = String.Empty
        'id = CType(sdsView.Table.Rows(0).ItemArray(5), String)
        'id = id + CType(sdsView.Table.Rows(1).ItemArray(5), String)
        'Label1.Text = id



        'Dim id As String 
        For Each item As DataRow In dv.Table.Rows
            id = id & Convert.ToString(item.ItemArray)
        Next
        Label1.Text = id




    End Sub
