I am trying to lock a multi-dimensional DataTable for multi-Threading, currently I am using the following code but it does not seem to work, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Can I lock the DataTable the following way, if not can you please give an example,
thanks in advance.


What I have tried:

lock (MyDataSet[n, x].MyDataTable)
MyDataSet[n, x].MyDataTable[record].Name = "John";

To start with, there is no such thing as "multi-dimensional datatable". Perhaps your data model is used to describe something multi-dimensional, but it makes no difference, and totally unrelated to threading. What you are trying to do, doesn't really make sense.

Instead to lock the table lock the SyncRoot[^] of the rows...
lock (MyDataSet[n, x].MyDataTable.Rows.SyncRoot)
  MyDataSet[n, x].MyDataTable.Rows[record].Name = "John";
