Previewing Data from Data Adapters

After you've set up a data adapter, you can get a quick look at the data it provides with the Data Adapter Preview dialog. Just click the Data|Preview Data menu item, or right-click an adapter and select the Preview Data menu item, to open this dialog, as you see in Figure 20.20, and click the Fill Dataset button to display the data from the adapter.

Getting a data preview such as this is very helpful to make sure you know what data the adapter will provide to your program, without having to actually run your program. See also "Examining Dataset Properties" in this chapter, coming up next.
