Currently I'm using this to turn it into a data table

 featureCursor = layer.FeatureClass.Search(que, false);
                    row = featureCursor.NextFeature();

                    if (row != null)
                        for (int i = 0; i < row.Fields.FieldCount; i++)
                        while (row != null)
                            dataRow = dataTable.NewRow();

                            for (int j = 0; j < featureCursor.Fields.FieldCount; j++)
                                dataRow[j] = row.get_Value(j);

                            row = featureCursor.NextFeature();

Does anyone know a more efficient way on doing this.

Also I'm binding the data table to a datagrid, does anyone know a good way I can do this so that I can make the attribute table editable, and values reflected in the feature layer.

I can do this, but not cleanly, has anyone tried this before?

  • Since you are using wpf, are you wanting to leverage INotifyPropertyChanged for the binding? – Kirk Kuykendall Aug 10 '11 at 20:52

There is a binding sample from ESRI.

Check it out:


Same sample in ArcGIS 10 documentation

  • Tested this a while back and it worked, I think I also added a wrapper for the IRow to hide the ArcObjects interface from the .net code but that depends on what requirements you have. – MathiasWestin Aug 12 '11 at 7:36

    how we could add Sort functionality to this wrapper ? – geogeek Jul 21 '12 at 12:09
