Associates a data source column with a System.Data.DataSet column, and is implemented by the System.Data.Common.DataColumnMapping class, which is used in common by .NET Framework data providers.

public interface IColumnMapping


The System.Data.IColumnMapping interface enables an inheriting class to implement a Column Mapping class, which associates a data source column with a System.Data.DataSet column. For more information, see [<topic://cpconsettingupdatatabledatacolumnmappings>].

An application does not create an instance of the System.Data.IColumnMapping interface directly, but creates an instance of a class that inherits System.Data.IColumnMapping.

Classes that inherit System.Data.IColumnMapping must implement all inherited members, and typically define additional members to add provider-specific functionality. For example, the System.Data.IColumnMapping interface defines the IColumnMapping.DataSetColumn property. In turn, the System.Data.Common.DataColumnMapping class inherits this property, and also defines the System.Data.Common.DataColumnMapping.GetDataColumnBySchemaAction(DataTable, Type, MissingSchemaAction) method.
