DataGridView question!

Hi All,

I am using a database which doesn't suppport and since I am using ORM I
can not use join query to create table object mapping. So my question
is

I have a master table which has bunch of columns I want to display. Of
those 3 of them are integer columns, which needed to be translated into
string by looking up on a reference table. How can I translate the
integer values to string after the table is fetched and put in the
datagridview?? I can read the reference table and put it in memory for
look up but I couldn't translate the columns in the datagridview to
string.. Any help please??

Thanks.

I would recommend using the DataGridViewCom boBoxColumn class. Here is
the link to the documentation:

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...boxcolumn.aspx

To elaborate on the list of steps in order to use the class:

Create a DataGridView.
Set the DataSource property of the DataGridView.

- This is the source of the data on the grid view.

Create a DataGridViewCom boBoxColumn.
If the data source contains multiple properties or columns, set the
DataPropertyNam e property to the name of the property or column for
populating the cell values.
Use the DataSource or Items properties to establish the selections.

- This is the source of the list data (from which your values come from)
on the DataGriViewComb oBoxColumn.

Use the ValueMember and DisplayMember properties to establish a mapping
between cell values and what will be displayed on the screen.

Hope this helps.

I'm trying to set my datagridview so that the first row will be left blank and to use it as a filtering filed for the datagridview.

Only it is very complicated to work this way cause for example when the user click on sort on the upper datagridview I need to sort the lower grid and so on when...

New to databinding in vs2005, I always did it manually in 2003. I have no problem loading comboboxes, and a change in that combobox changes the data in the textboxes but I can not figure out a way to get the data in a datagridview to change. For example 2 columns are ID and amount_paid, the datagridview loads on form load with all ID's and amounts. How do I get it to only bring back the selected ID. Sounds like I may need to change the SQL...
