How can I use Select method of a DataTable just to fetch UserNames starting with 'M'. Lets assume that UserNameTextBox has a string M

oDataTable.Select("UserName = '" + UserNameTextBox.Text + "'");

DataView oDataView = oDataTable.DefaultView;

oDataView.Sort = "UserName";

UserGridView.DataSource = oDataView;


and when I typed full name into textbox, which I am sure DataTable contains, it list everything not just what I typed. Can someone help me please?

Hi Ashish, 

try this:

DataView view = new DataView();

view.Table = oDataTable;

view.RowFilter = "UserName = '" + UserNameTextBox.Text + "'";

UserGridView.DataSource = view;
