Which is the more efficient code?

  1.     Private Sub Test()
  2.         For Each row As DataRow In dtMyTable.Rows
  3.             Debug.Print("{0}", row(0))
  4.         Next
  5.     End Sub
  7.     Private Sub Test2()
  8.         If dtMyTable.Rows.Count > 0 Then
  9.             For Each row As DataRow In dtMyTable.Rows
  10.                 Debug.Print("{0}", row(0))
  11.             Next
  12.         End If
  13.     End Sub
Looking at the IL, it takes roughly twice as many lines to involve the enumerator as it does to query the RowCount. So does this mean that we should base our decision on the likelihood of the table to contain rows? If it's likely to be empty then using the If Block would provide an earlier exit.

I'm new at reading IL. It appears that if the table contains some rows, two instances of the dataTable is created in the Test2 method. One to check the RowCount and another to invoke the enumerator logic. Does the IL reuse these instances?

I know this might be really splitting hairs but I'd be interested in the best choice for optimum performance. Thanks for your thoughts.

Hi, I would like to format certain DataRows in a Windows.Forms.DataGrid. I know how to do that for the columns, but I cannot find a way to assign a specific font, color etc. to a specific kind of DataRows. I have 4 different kinds identified by a type value and would like to show the Rows with different styles For Example: All Rows of type 1 should be in bold All Rows of type 2 should be in italics and grey

I have used this method many a time in previous applications without any hitches at all and i'm trying to use it in my current application and it isn't working. The only difference I can see is that I am using a strongly typed dataset (and hence datatables and datarows), does that make this function not work? I figured as my TaskRow inherited from DataRow that there shouldn't be a problem. The code, put simply is as follows:

How do I create an array of datarows from a sorted list? I put a bunch of datarows into a sorted list to sort them. Then I got an array of the sorted elements. However, I cannot typecast them. I get an invalid cast error. I notice that in the debugger, that arrays of datarows are listed as {Length=xx}, but my arrays are listed as {system.array} and refuse to typecast.

Hello: We wrote an entire application where we add our DataRows to our DataTables immediately. However, we have to shut off our constraints to do this. We would like to use detached DataRows to circumvent this. What do you normally do to track detached DataRows? Is there a way to retrieve them? or do I have to stored them in some temporary location? Thanks for any input!

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
