Example : We want to display all records of Person table that have leader.

C# code
// Declare and initiate a new instance PersonTable that represent as member data
PersonTable member = new PersonTable();

// Declare and initiate a new instance PersonTable that represent as leader data
PersonTable leader = new PersonTable();

SqlSelectFrom select = new SqlSelectFrom(member);
// Don’t forget to set connection string !
// NOTE : it is optional if the data-schema class using default connection.

select.ConnectionString = "...";  // [OPTIONAL]

// to display person with his/her leader data,
// we will use INNER-JOIN between member.LeaderId and leader.PersonId

select.Tables.InnerJoin(leader).On.Compare(member.LeaderId, ComparisonOperator.Equal, leader.PersonId);

// Execute the query
Irwsoft.Data.DataView dv = select.Execute();

// here how to access data from DataView by define which column to read the data
String firstNamePerson = dv.Rows[0][member.FirstName].ToString();
String firstNameLeader = dv.Rows[0][member.FirstName].ToString();
