binding datacolumn to another datacolumn in a datagrid

i have a datatable 'Users' with two columns:
'FriendlyName'
'UserName'

i have a datagrid with two columns that I want to bind with the
'Authors' table:

'FriendlyName' : ComboBox column populated from another datatable with
two columns (DisplayMember = 'Name' which holds a FriendlyName and
ValueMember = 'ID' which holds a UserName)

'UserName' : TextBox column to be populated (readonly) from the 'ID'
(ValueMember') of the currently selected 'FriendlyName'
(DisplayedMembe r)

The idea is that when you select a friendly name from the ComboBox, the
'Author' table then holds that name in 'FriendlyName' and the
corresponding 'UserName'.

I have the combobox column working and both column in the grid that are
binding, but how do I bind the 'ValueMember' of the current combobox to
the second column which is also bound to the 'UserName' column of the
original 'Authors' table?

The DataTable contains, for example, only one column of lets say Person class. Person class has three fields, and a constructor that takes a single string and parses it over those three fields. Now, how do I modify the Person class (which interfaces to implement) so I can bind my DataTable to a DataGrid and then add, modify and delete records through it?

Well, conceptually this is what I want to do. I was hoping to use an ArrayList to build a (dynamic) array of string arrays, and then bind the ArrayList object to a DataGrid. I can do that, but it doesn't give me the results that I wanted. Is there a way to successfully do this? I even tried to bind a multidimensional array (string ) to a DataGrid, but an exception is thrown with the message "Array was not a one-dimensional array". I'm...

What I have is three forms. Form one with buttons 1, 2 and 3; and forms 2 and 3 with datagrids. Button 1 populates arrays a(i,j) and b(i,j) with values. Button 2 creates a datatable containing the a(i,j) array then adds that table to a dataset which is in turn bound to a datagrid in an instance of form 2 called matrixa. Button 3 creates a datatable containing the b(i,j) array then adds that table to a dataset which is in turn bound to...

Hi folks, I've got another problem. Basically, I'm trying to use a nested GridView, however the nexted GridView displays no values (even though in debug I'm getting valid values into my DataSet.

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,...
