Find The Maximum Value Of A DataTable?Jun 20, 2012
I have been very stumped by this one. I have a fairly large (~1500 x ~1000) DataTable of positive and negative integers only that I acquired from a .csv file. For my program, I need to find the maximum value of the entire table, not just in a single row or column. Optimally, the code would be short and sweet, but that's not always the case ;).
The name of my DataTable is BeamMap and I am trying to return a value of MaxValue (already declared as an integer). I can post the code I have for creating the DataTable upon request.
Extra Credit: (not really)
Is there a way to quickly find the location (ie., row,column) of said maximum value? So far, all of the examples I've seen check cell by cell for a predetermined value, which is rather inefficient for the number of data points that I have.
