The better Option is to limit the no of records in Your Query..Using Top Clause in sql.

If you provide one scenario, it will be easier to answer your question. I don't think dataset has such a property to limit the number of records. While copying records to a dataset, we can set the number of records to be copied to the dataset.
For example we can use 'Take' method in LINQ .[^]

Solution 1

DataView dataView = new DataView(dataTable);
dataView.RowFilter = String.Format("EventDate > '{0}'", DateTime.Now);
dataView.Sort = "EventDate";
dataTable = dataView.ToTable();
while (dataTable.Rows.Count > _rowLimit)
    dataTable = dataTable.AsEnumerable().Skip(0).Take(50).CopyToDataTable();
return dataTable;

I forgot to say
You'll need namespace: System.Linq and System.Data
