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

public interface ITableMapping


The System.Data.ITableMapping interface allows an inheriting class to implement a TableMapping 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.ITableMapping interface directly, but creates an instance of a class that inherits System.Data.ITableMapping.

Classes that inherit System.Data.ITableMapping must implement the inherited members, and typically define additional members to add provider-specific functionality. For example, the System.Data.ITableMapping interface defines the ITableMapping.DataSetTable property. In turn, the System.Data.Common.DataTableMapping class inherits this property, and also defines the System.Data.Common.DataTableMapping.GetDataTableBySchemaAction(DataSet, MissingSchemaAction) method.
