yeah, you can just move them in the column collection ...

MSDN:
"Note   The order that the columns are displayed in the DataGrid control is controlled by the order that the columns appear in the Columns collection. Although you can programmatically change the order of the columns by manipulating the Columns collection, it is easier to list the columns in the desired display order."

i am basically interested in placing my 'hard-coded' column at the end of the column collection. but i also don't know how many dynamically created columns there will be, so that might be a problem. i'm sure there isn't something easy that just let's me 'make this column last'

nevermind I lied ... cant do it ...

Note   Explicitly declared columns may be used in conjunction with automatically generated columns. When using both, explicitly declared columns will be rendered first, followed by the automatically generated columns. Automatically generated columns are not added to the Columns collection.
