  • Create a DataView and set its RowFilter.  There are a bunch of different ways to do this:

        string filter = "TaskID = " + taskID.ToString();
        DataView dv = myDataTable.DefaultView;
        dv.RowFilter = filter;

    or, using the constructor:

        DataView dv = new DataView(myDataTable, filter);

    Look under "Sorting and Filtering Data Using a DataView" in the help.

  • It'd help if you could tell me a little more about the specifics. If I understand you correctly, you need to filter a datatable based on some criteria?  If so, then you can use the DefaultView.RowFilter property of the given datatable and filter there.  You may also be able to use DataTable.Select . 


    That's if you're using it as  a DataTable.  From your question though, it also sounds like you may actually want to query the XML for those attributes.  Before getting into it too much, are you primarily working with XML or do you want to use a DataTable?  The approach will be markedly different (forunately both are simple) depending on which you need to do.
