Checking if DataAdapter has records

Checking if DataAdapter has records

Checking if DataAdapter has records

I'm using a adapter and dataset to populate a gridview. I need to be able to throw an error message if there is no record.

This doesn't seem to work. any help would be appreciated

Dim dgDS As New DataSet
Dim dgDA As New SqlDataAdapter(sCommand)

dgDA.Fill(dgDS, "MyTable")

If dgDS.Tables.Count = 0 Then
lerror.Visible = True
Exit Sub

dg1.DataSource = dgDS.Tables("MyTable")

End If

RE: Checking if DataAdapter has records

never mind...was missing this

If dgDS.Tables(0).Rows.Count = 0 Then
