GridView help required

I have a GridView control which is bound to a Stored Procedure (SP) using a
SQLDataSource. The problem I'm having is that the SP returns 4 known columns
and x amount of unknown columns.

I can use the AutoGenerateCol umns feature to render all the returned columns
but I'm then having problems adding in 1 column at the right of the GridView
at runtime. This is because AutoGenerated columns aren't added to the
GridView's columns collection so any column created programmaticall y is
inserted at the start (first column in GridView).

If I disable AutoGenerateCol umns, I can declaretively create the first 4
columns as I know what they are but there can be anywhere between 1-18
additional columns after this, with unknown column names (it's a crosstab
SP). With this method, I can't think of a way to find out how many "extra"
columns there are and programmaticall y create them.

Any advise/inspiration appreciated on how to approach this using either;

AutoGeneratedCo lumns and inserting a column at the end of the GridView
programmaticall y,
Not using AtuoGeneratedCo lumns, declaretively creating the first 4 columns
and then programmaticall y creating the x amount of columns.

Thanks in advance.

typically, I autogenerate the columns, then programmaticall y add additional
ones from there.

Yeah, but autogenerated columns aren't added to the GridView's columns
collection so any columns programmaticall y added to the gridview are added at
the beginning of the GridView.

Unless you can tell me how to set it up so that columns are added AFTER the
bound columns?

try something like this

'************** *************** *************** ***********
Sub Page_Init(sende r As Object, e As EventArgs)
' dynamically add column to the datagrid
' This must be done in the Page_Init function
'************** *************** *************** ***********
Dim hc1 as new HyperLinkColumn
hc1.DataNavigat eUrlField="repo rtsID"
hc1.DataNavigat eUrlFormatStrin g= "Report.aspx?rp t={0}"
PatientReportGr id.Columns.Add (hc1)

End Sub

When you use the ObjectDataSource with the GridView ASP.NET control is it the client (browser) that makes the SOAP request required for interaction with the WebService or is it the server? I'm just trying to work out how the GridView control works (i.e. what it does for me behind the scenes). i.e. When I retrieve data to display in my GridView is a reload of the page from the server required?

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
