AmazonDynamoDBClient client = new AmazonDynamoDBClient();

// Issue call
ListTablesResult result = client.ListTables();

// List retrieved tables
List tables = result.TableNames;
Console.WriteLine("Retrieved tables: {0}",
    string.Join(", ", tables));

                

ListTables paging sample


// Create a client
AmazonDynamoDBClient client = new AmazonDynamoDBClient();

string startTableName = null;
do
{
    // Configure ListTables request with the marker value
    ListTablesRequest request = new ListTablesRequest
    {
        ExclusiveStartTableName = startTableName,
    };

    // Issue call
    ListTablesResult result = client.ListTables(request);

    // List retrieved tables
    List tables = result.TableNames;
    Console.WriteLine("Retrieved tables: {0}",
        string.Join(", ", tables));

    // Update marker value from the result
    startTableName = result.LastEvaluatedTableName;

} while (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(startTableName)); // Test marker value
