Classes that implement IPlugInDatasetHelper2

Classes Description


This interface can be implemented to optimize queries if there is a way to filter results from the data source more efficiently than checking the attributes of each row one-by-one. For example, data sources that have indexes should implement this interface to take advantage of indexing.
Dataset helpers for data sources without an optimized method of querying (like indexing) do not need to implement this interface.
