ADO.NET Provider for REST

Result Sets

You can access the same column information about the results of a query that you can for table schemas. See Columns for the columns returned.

Retrieving Result Set Metadata

You can use the GetSchemaTable method of the RESTDataReader to retrieve result set metadata. Call GetSchemaTable after calling ExecuteReader.

Each row of the DataTable describes a column in the query's result.


string connectionString = "DataModel=Relational;URI=C:\people.xml;Format=XML";

using (RESTConnection conn = new RESTConnection(connectionString)) {
  RESTCommand cmd = new RESTCommand("SELECT * FROM NorthwindOData WHERE = ''", conn);
  RESTDataReader rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader();
  DataTable schemaTable = rdr.GetSchemaTable();
  foreach (DataRow row in schemaTable.Rows) {
    foreach (DataColumn col in schemaTable.Columns) {
      Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", col.ColumnName, row[col]);


Dim connectionString As String = "DataModel=Relational;URI=C:\people.xml;Format=XML"

Using conn As New RESTConnection(connectionString)
  Dim cmd As New RESTCommand("SELECT * FROM NorthwindOData WHERE = ''", conn)
  Dim rdr As RESTDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
  Dim schemaTable As DataTable = rdr.GetSchemaTable()
  For Each row As DataRow In schemaTable.Rows
    For Each col As DataColumn In schemaTable.Columns
      Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", col.ColumnName, row(col))
End Using
