How to check whether a dataset is strongly typed or not?

P: n/a
When I'm debugging a Windows Forms Application in VS2005 IDE, how can I check
whether a dataset is strongly typed or not in Watch window? Are there some
properties or methods only exist for strongly typed dataset?

A strongly typed dataset has field descriptors and datatypes asociated with
it, a "Weak, Untyped " dataset must be accessed with field indexes (
accessible by position number, or field name ) and all field values are of
the object type and must be casted to the right datatypes

Hi Michel,

Thanks. I believe you're saying that the objects and collections of
untyped dataset need to be accessed with field indexes. So far, I only find
column value being object type.
