Iterating through a DataTable in Atlas.


getItem(i) for the rows.

getProperty(“Column Name”) for the column.

        function MethodReturn(result)


            var i = 0;

            var str = "";

            var strRowsInfo = "";

            var strReturn = "<br />";

            //get a datatable

            var tbl1 = result.getItem(0);

            for(i = 0; i < tbl1.get_length(); i++)


                //tbl1.getItem(i) will return the ith DataRow

                //getProperty("Column Name") will return the column value from a DataRow

                strRowsInfo += tbl1.getItem(i).getProperty("ProjectName") + strReturn;


            document.getElementById("RowInfo").innerHTML = strRowsInfo;
