delete a row in dataset
I was hoping that someone could assist me in the following.

I have created a dataset in c# and have bound this to a datagrid and I want to delete a row in the datatable in the dataset.

I know how to add a row to the dataset but am unsure of how to delete a row. I want to delete a row by using the unique ID number but I am unsure of how to do this.

Can I use the indexof operator to obtain the index of the row in the datatable?

I am not using an adapter as the datasource is based on xml.

I would be grateful of any advice.

Use datarow.delete and then use AcceptChanges to commit the delete.

Re: delete a row in dataset
I am currently trying to use the delete method and then the accept changes method but am having problems.

I am trying to locate a row in the datatable to delete but am not sure how to go about this. I have decided to use a for loop to iterate through the datatable until a match is found with the entered ID number. However, when the matching ID number is found, the code that I use to delete the found row doesnt seem to work. I get a thrown exception saying that the row at position (n)does not exist in the table and the datagrid on the form goes blank.

The code that I am using to try to delete the found row is shown below.
Code: C#

int RowCount = 0;
foreach(DataRow dr in mydataset.Tables[1].Rows)
    RowCount ++;
    if (txtStudID.Text == dr[0].ToString())
} //end of for loop     
f2.dataGrid1.DataSource = mydataset;   

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Re: delete a row in dataset
Please read Before you make a query thread regarding code snippets.

7) Use code tags. Use the appropriate code tag (e.g. [ php][/php ] and [ code][/code ]) to make your code easier to read. See BB Code Section for [Code]
Also you need to break the loop where you are deleting so that the AcceptChanges is on the correct RowCount
