As far as i understand , i can not use html tags inside datagrid because of the datagrid's structure which defines a strict <table> structure and can not be changed. My problem is that i am using datagrid to edit, update, and add inline. I am using templatecolumns because onEdit event i want to show some cells in text boxes others in drop downs. In Addition to that i am adding dinamically a column with defined column name and column datatype entered by the user. If I use all these features i would want instead of doing each template column manually, i need to create columns dinamically in other words to loop rthough the entire dataset table and to create datagrid column for each datatable column. Keep in mind that the table structure will change constantly, as the user will add/ delete columns. Perhars if i code my datagrid through code behind i could do what i want ?

yes,
from the code behind you can create what ever control you want - columns, nested controls etc.
but you have to that carefully because of dynamically created controls are not so common: check this :http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;317515

but in the datagrid you can use html tags and make them server controls.
the operation with this tags is pretty common by using FindControl method of the current parent control and work with the nested control

i suggest you to think not for dynamically created controls but for add all the columns that you can have and work with their Visible property
