How to create a DataView
The DataView provides different views of the data stored in a DataTable. DataView can be used to sort, filter, and search in a DataTable , additionally we can add new rows and modify the content in a DataTable. DataViews can be created and configured both design time and run time . Changes made to a DataView affect the underlying DataTable automatically, and changes made to the underlying DataTable automatically affect any DataView objects that are viewing the DataTable.
We can create DataView in two different ways. We can use the DataView constructor, or you can create a reference to the DefaultView property of the DataTable. The DataView constructor can be empty, or it can take either a DataTable as a single argument, or a DataTable along with filter criteria, sort criteria, and a row state filter.
dataView = dataSet.Tables(0).DefaultView
