Hi Serge,

The DataGrid doesn't have to connect to a DataSet. You can connect it to any
collection object as long as the object implements the required interface.

I believe you only need to implement IEnumerable and ICollection to use your
collection in a DataGrid.

Hello, Does anyone know how you can prevent a row full of 'null' values from being added to the datagrid when a user hits the delete key, deleting the word (null) which represents the default value of 'null'? Here's a simple way to reproduce this problem: 1) Add a datagrid to a winform 2) Put this code into the Form1_Load event and run it.

I am just getting into the WinForms data grid, and just about everything I am seeing on it seems to say that the grid must be bound to an ADO.Net dataset. I want to use the grid as a simple unbound grid-- all I want to do is write to the grid, read from it, and allow the user to enter text in particular cells. Is the WinForms datagrid a viable candidate for this sort of work? If it is, can you recommend a resource to help me get up to...

Win2000 ..Net 1.1 SP1 c# using Visual Studio Ok, I'm currently in a "knock down - drag out" tussle with the .Net 1.1 datagrid.

By selected row I mean the row

I have a DataGrid (winforms) that is bound to a table (MSDE) that has 41,000+ records in it. The form loads relatively fast and I can scroll all of the data... However, when I click in any column of any row other than the first one, it takes forever to go to that row, even if it's just the next one. So I limited the query to only a certain set of data which returned a little less than a thousand records and the form shows at the same...

Rather than all that painting, brush, etc. code to change the styles of a ..NET datagrid to start with and on the fly, I'd rather be able to set a lot of the stuff in the designer properties of the grid.

I guess a custom control dll type data grid with lots of nice properties would be...

How can I tell which rows are visible in a datagrid (winforms app)? I have alot of data in the grid (bound to a datatable), and I need to refresh that data frequently.

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,...
