DataSet Events Working in VB.NET
In this article I will explain working with DataSet Events in ADO.NET.
A dataset has a MergeFailed event that occurs when merging two datasets fails. MergeFailedEventHandler handles the MergeFailed event, which receives an argument of type MergeFailedEventArges that contains data related to this event. The MergeFailedEventHandler is as follows:
Public Delegate Sub MergeFailedEventHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MergeFailedEventArgs)
Where sender is the source of the event and e is the MergeFailedEventArgs abject that contains the event data.
The MergeFailedEventArgs has Conflict and Table properties. The Conflict property returns a description of the merge conflict, and the Table property returns the name of the data table. Listing 9-7 shows an example of the MergeFailed event handler. As you can see, the MergeFailedBtn_Click method creates a connection and a data adapter and then fills a dataset using the Fill method of the data adapter. After that the code creates a second dataset, calls the Fill method to fill it, and then calls the Merge method of the dataset.
Listing 9-7. Writing code to call the MergeFailed event handler
Partial Public Class Form1
Public Sub New()
Private Sub MergeFailedBtn_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
Dim conn As New OleDbConnection()
Dim strDSN As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & "Data Source=C:\Northwind.mdb"
conn.ConnectionString = strDSN
Dim sql As String = "SELECT * FROM Employees"
Dim da As New OleDbDataAdapter(sql, conn)
Dim ds1 As New DataSet("ds1")
sql = "SELECT * FROM Customers"
da = New OleDbDataAdapter(sql, conn)
Dim ds2 As New DataSet("ds2")
AddHandler ds1.MergeFailed, AddressOf OnMergeFailed
Protected Shared Sub OnMergeFailed(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As MergeFailedEventArgs)
