Range of records from database
In ADO.NET, DataTable objects are used to represent the tables in a DataSet. The DataSet is designed to be used in a disconnected mode.
Dim ds As New DataSet
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
In some situations we need to retrieve data only specific range of rows. In this situations we can fill the Dataset from DataAdapter only that specific range of rows. The following piece of code shows how to fill specific range of rows from DataAdapter to Dataset.
DataAdapter.Fill(Dataset, 5, 3, "tablename")
DataAdapter.Fill(Dataset, 5, 3, "tablename");
The above code will fill the Dataset starting from 5th row and 3 rows.
5 is the starting row no
3 is no of rows we want to fill.
The following ASP.NET program select data from authors table and display row no 5 to 3 rows.
