Does anybody know if there is a limit to the size that DataSet.GetRows()
can return and store in the local storage?

I want to store a table in the local storage but am unsure if there is a
size limit so it might not fit.

If you mean browser local storage then limit will be with it and not
with GetRows.

Assuming user/browser allows local storage you can usually have couple
of MB to 10 MB. However it really varies by browser and some even
allowing user to say "unlimited".

Test it with the browser most likely going to be used with your app.

Yes there is. Also you cannot count this not being removed.

Finally note that this is not secure storage so if it's for lookup type
tables cached locally then you're fine but don't store anything
sensitive there.

What Raul said, plus there are a number of variables too. iOS allows a certain amount to a web site in the browser, and a load more if the user pins that site to the desktop, along with a better keeping of the data guarantee. So it may vary lots according to the browser/OS version, and may be cleared at any moment.
