C# List to DataTable

Don’t recall where I found this but converts List to DataTable.

public static System.Data.DataTable ToDataTable<T>(this IList<T> data)
        {
            System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptorCollection props = System.ComponentModel.TypeDescriptor.GetProperties(typeof(T));
            System.Data.DataTable table = new System.Data.DataTable();
            for (int i = 0; i < props.Count; i++)
            {
                System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptor prop = props[i];
                table.Columns.Add(prop.Name);
                //table.Columns.Add(prop.Name, prop.PropertyType);
            }
            object[] values = new object[props.Count];
            foreach (T item in data)
            {
                for (int i = 0; i < values.Length; i++)
                {
                    values[i] = props[i].GetValue(item);
                }
                table.Rows.Add(values);
            }
            return table;
        }
