Hi,


When declare a datarow = datarow, when change value in one, the changes are reflected in other:


Dim row 1 As DataRow
Dim row2  As DataRow

row2=row1

row2("Id")=100

When put row2=row1and modify a column field the value is the same for row1 and row2. How can declare row2 to "clone" row 1, but when modify row2 only affects row2 and not row1?

best regards

Just to explain.  When you write
Dim row 1 As DataRow
Dim row2  As DataRow

row2=row1

the you have ONE row only! In other words, both row1 and row2 point to the SAME object.
So this will NOT work.

Please see the solution on MSDN:

===========================================================================

See my code below:
namespace ConsoleApplication5
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            DataTable dt = new DataTable("MyTable");
            DataColumn c1 = new DataColumn("c1", typeof(string));
            DataColumn c2 = new DataColumn("c2", typeof(string));
            dt.Columns.Add(c1);
            dt.Columns.Add(c2);
            DataRow dr1 = dt.NewRow();
            DataRow dr2 = dt.NewRow();
            dt.Rows.Add(dr1);
            dt.Rows.Add(dr2);
            dr1[0] = "A";
            dr1[1] = "B";
            
            dr2.ItemArray = (object[])dr1.ItemArray.Clone();
            dr2[1] = "HELLO!";

            foreach (DataRow dr in dt.Rows)
            {
                foreach (object o in dr.ItemArray)
                {
                    Console.Write(o.ToString() + "\t");
                }
                Console.WriteLine();
            }

            Console.ReadLine();


        }
    }
}

Does this work?
row2.ItemArray = (object[])row1.ItemArray.Clone()


Oops - not looked too closely at the previous comment.  I'd just seen the foreach and thought it copied each field.
