I need to read a field's values from a Feature Class specifically it is a Feature Class in an enterprise geodatabase. The values will be populated as a Search Box suggestion source. 

I can do that by creating a FeatureLayer via

LayerFactory.Instance.CreateFeatureLayer 

and using RowCursor

 using (ArcGIS.Core.Data.Table ProposedBoundariesTable = FLayer.GetTable())
{
   using (RowCursor rowCursor = ProposedBoundariesTable.Search())
   {
        //collect the information                        
   }
}

 

However, in some cases, I want end-users would be able to do make a quick search without creating a Feature Layer or project item. Is there a way to do that in ArcGIS Pro SDK?

@Amadeus111 Can you open the row cursor as below as described in snippets

// Open a featureClass (within a feature dataset or outside a feature dataset).
using (FeatureClass featureClass = geodatabase.OpenDataset<FeatureClass>("FeatureClassName")) 
 using (RowCursor rowCursor = featureClass .Search(new QueryFilter())){
}

@Wolf  Thank you for your reply but those links are broken on my end. 

I used @Aashis link and worked fine. I appreciate your help though.
