AdomdConnection.GetSchemaDataSet Method (Guid, Object[], Boolean)


Updated: March 10, 2016

Returns schema information from a data source by using a Guid object to identify the information, applying any specified restrictions on the information, and optionally throwing an exception when inline errors occur.

Namespace:   Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient
Assembly:  Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient (in Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient.dll)

public DataSet GetSchemaDataSet(
	Guid schema,
	object[] restrictions,
	bool throwOnInlineErrors


Type: System.Guid

A Guid object that specifies the schema table to be returned.

Type: System.Object[]

An array of Object objects that specifies the values for the restriction columns that are used by the schema table. These values are applied in the order of the restriction columns. That is, the first restriction value applies to the first restriction column, the second restriction value applies to the second restriction column, and so on.

Type: System.Boolean

If true, inline errors cause an exception to be thrown; otherwise DataRow.GetColumnError is used to determine the error generated.

Return Value

Type: System.Data.DataSet

A DataSet that represents the contents of the specified OLE DB schema rowset.

If throwOnInlineErrors is true, this method behaves identically to GetSchemaDataSet.If throwOnInlineErrors is false, and there are errors that occur while retrieving schema information, the resulting DataSet may contain null cells that would not normally be null. To determine the details of the errors that occur, you can use the DataRow.GetColumnsInError, DataRow.GetColumnError, DataRow.HasErrors, DataSet.HasErrors, and DataTable.HasErrors methods and properties.
