Contains a collection of DataColumnMapping objects, and is implemented by the System.Data.Common.DataColumnMappingCollection, which is used in common by .NET Framework data providers.

public interface IColumnMappingCollection : IList


The System.Data.IColumnMappingCollection interface enables an inheriting class to implement a ColumnMapping collection. For more information, see [<topic://cpconsettingupdatatabledatacolumnmappings>].

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

Classes that inherit System.Data.IColumnMappingCollection must implement all inherited members, and typically define additional members to add provider-specific functionality. For example, the System.Data.IColumnMappingCollection interface defines the IColumnMappingCollection.RemoveAt(string) method. In turn, the System.Data.Common.DataTableMappingCollection class inherits this method, and defines two additional overloads of System.Data.Common.DataTableMappingCollection.RemoveAt(int).
