IRowBuffer Interface

Provides access to members used for getting and modifying a rows values and for getting the fields in the row.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.


A RowBuffer is a transient object that is capable of holding the state of a row but has no object identity.  It is used primarily during data loading as the argument to the InsertRow method on an insert cursor. A RowBuffer is obtained from the Table::CreateRowBuffer method.


Name Description
Read-only property Fields The fields Collection for this row buffer.
Read/write property Value The value of the field with the specified index.

The IRowBuffer interface contains methods to access the state (the set of field values) for a row buffer. These methods take as argument the numeric index of the field to be accessed.
