How To Check If a Column Exists in DataRow


This is a very small post to explain how can you check whether a column exists in a DataRow. This is a very handy tip when you are working with a set of data and you’re not sure everytime the query will return a specific column. Let us assume we have a DataRow named “row” and we want to check whether a column named “Active” exists in this DataRow or not.

To check for the column existence, you can use the below line of code –

      Console.WriteLine("Column Exists");
      Console.WriteLine("Column Does Not Exists");
