How to add multiple columns at once to a DataTable Object using C# and AddRange

28 Feb

So instead of creating 20 DataTable.Columns.Add statements use add range and use a array of columns and some copy pasta magic like the following

DeliveryCompanyInfo.Columns.AddRange(new DataColumn[]
{
new DataColumn("CompanyName"),
new DataColumn("Name"),
new DataColumn("Phone"),
new DataColumn("Address1"),
new DataColumn("Address2"),
new DataColumn("City"),
new DataColumn("State"),
new DataColumn("Zip"),

});

Work smarter not harder. If you have to define a table with more then 2 or three columns use this for maintainability, proper disposal, legibility, and productive use of time.
