HELP PLEASE: Cannot refresh Datagrid

P: n/a
Hey guys, please HELP

I am going nuts with the datagrid control.

I cannot get the damn control to refresh. I am using soap to get information
from a web service. I have an XML writer output the file to a folder, and
then I read it back into the dataset using the dataset1.readxml. Up to this
point, everything works wonderfully. The query executes, the dataset gets
populated, and I get the results displayed in the datagrid.

The problem:

When I run another query, everything goes as before expect that the datagrid
columns WON'T REFRESH. I can see the data changes, but the columns remain,
and since the columns don't match any other column in the new set,
everything is (null).

How do I REFRESH the grid columns?.... I mean, I have tried everything, I
have called the dataset.clear() method, I have called the
dataset.table.clear() method, I have unbound the grid from the datasource
and rebound again, deleted all tables, etc etc etc. I just can't get rid of
the damn columns.

Please help, it's been a long weekend and it is getting frustrating.....

Thank you in advance.

Regards.

Juan,
Did you know that there is a special newsgroup
microstof.public.dotned.aspnet.datagridcontrol
I think that you get in that newsgroup the best answer.

Hi Juan,

First of all, how do you bind the DataSet? I'd strongly suggest using
SetDataBindingMethod.
Second, do you create TableStyles/ColumnStyles manually? If yes, you might
need to re-create them after a new data source has been bound to the grid.

Probably you could also post a code snippet to illustrate the problem?

I am not talking about ASP .NET.

I am talking about the datagrid control for VB .NET

Thanks for your answer anyways.

I know Juan,
That group seems to be for special for the ASP.Net datagrid control

I did not say, go away :-)

But it is just an advise.

Guys, I just cannot get this %^^$&% datagrid to refresh. I managed to
overcome the columns problem, and here is where I am now:

As you will see in the below piece of code, Once I get the datatable, I EVEN
check to see if it exists on the dataset. If it finds it, IT DELETES all the
rows from the table (another attempt to make it work) and then it drops the
table. After dropping it adds the table again to the dataset.

The intersting part:
Deleting all the records from the table actually makes the grid refresh, so
it looks empty, but when I reload the table, IT DOES NOT DISPLAY THE
RECORDS, it now stays EMPTY.

Sigh.... I have included every possible instruction I KNOW OF to make the
damn grid refresh, yet, it shows nothing...

Please help.

Here is a piece of code:

Dim x As DataTable = GetDataTable(Results)

x.TableName = tvDesc.SelectedNode.Text

If Not DataSetSF.Tables(x.TableName) Is Nothing Then

DataSetSF.Tables(x.TableName).Clear()

DataSetSF.Tables.Remove(x.TableName)

DataSetSF.AcceptChanges()

End If

DataSetSF.Tables.Add(x)

DataSetSF.Tables(x.TableName).AcceptChanges()

DataSetSF.AcceptChanges()

dgresults.SetDataBinding(DataSetSF, tvDesc.SelectedNode.Text)

dgresults.DataMember = tvDesc.SelectedNode.Text

dgresults.CaptionText = x.TableName & " - " &
DataSetSF.Tables(x.TableName).Rows.Count.ToString & " Records."

dgresults.Refresh()

dgresults.Update()
