Thanks for the DataRow idea - I'm not too sure of any overhead the DataRow has behind the scenes though. All I wanted was an object that represents an entity of sorts.
Populating data into the GeneralObject via a DataRow is only one possible way though. Right now the performance is awesome -...
Didn't know where else to put this, but this was the closest.
This is just a general question regarding narrowing conversions. What I have is one abstract class:
Public MustInherit Class GeneralObject
Default Public MustOverride Property Item(ByVal Index As Integer) As Object
