Convert data from Generic List to DataTable.

Posted by Viral Sarvaiya on May 9, 2013


Today i am sharing very good a function which convert all Generic list’s data to Datatable is as below

public DataTable LINQToDataTable<T>(IEnumerable<T> varlist)
{
  DataTable dtReturn = new DataTable();

  // column names
  PropertyInfo[] oProps = null;

  if (varlist == null) return dtReturn;

  foreach (T rec in varlist)
  {
    // Use reflection to get property names, to create table, Only first time, others will follow
    if (oProps == null)
    {
      oProps = ((Type)rec.GetType()).GetProperties();
      foreach (PropertyInfo pi in oProps)
      {
        Type colType = pi.PropertyType;

        if ((colType.IsGenericType) && (colType.GetGenericTypeDefinition() == typeof(Nullable<>)))
        {
          colType = colType.GetGenericArguments()[0];
        }

        dtReturn.Columns.Add(new DataColumn(pi.Name, colType));
      }
    }
    DataRow dr = dtReturn.NewRow();

    foreach (PropertyInfo pi in oProps)
    {
      dr[pi.Name] = pi.GetValue(rec, null) == null ? DBNull.Value : pi.GetValue(rec, null);
    }

    dtReturn.Rows.Add(dr);
  }
  return dtReturn;
}

Hope this will helps you.
Thanks.
