DataView enables data-binding scenarios for LINQ to DataSet and can be created from a typed or untyped DataTable, providing a default view of that table. Filtering and sorting can be set on the DataView after it has been created from a DataTable. The DataView is then bound to a UI control, such as a DataGrid or a DataGridView, providing a simple data binding model.
