Get ID from Parenttable


  • Hello dear community,

    i have 2 tables with a relationship. Now when i add a new row to the Articlebindingsource i want the ID of the Ordertable to be inserted into the OrderID Column of the Articeltable. Is there an easy way to solve this or do i have to make a sql que and ask for the ID of the Parenttable and paste it?

  • There is GetParentRow and GetChildRow methods to obtain information in either direction. Both work off the relationship setup under the BindingSources at the DataSet level.

    See MSDN documentation.

    Here is an example to work with

    var parentId = ((DataRowView)Articlebindingsource.Current).Row.GetParentRow("YourRelationshipNameGoesHere").Field<int>("id");
