Hi Experts,

Here is my code to create my datagrid template column:

public class MediasColumn : ITemplate
{
    public void InstantiateIn(System.Web.UI.Control container)
    {
        Table tableParent=new Table();
        tableParent.ID="TableParent";
        TableRow tableRowParentMaster=new TableRow();
        TableCell tableCellParentMaster=new TableCell();

// Here, I want to add a usercontrol to my table. How can I do ?

         container.Controls.Add(tableParent);
    }
}

Thanks.

Hi,
did you tried using LoadControl like

Table tableParent=new Table();
tableParent.ID="TableParent";
TableRow tableRowParentMaster=new TableRow();
TableCell tableCellParentMaster=new TableCell();

Control c1 = LoadControl("MyUserControl.ascx");
((MyUserControl)c1).BackColor = "beige";
tableCellParentMaster.Controls.Add(c1)
container.Controls.Add(tableParent);


regards,

Here is what you want:

TemplateColumn templateColumn=new TemplateColumn();
MediasColumn mediasColumn=new MediasColumn();
templateColumn.ItemTemplate=mediasColumn;
MyDataGrid.Columns.Add(templateColumn);


The real problem is that I want to add a usercontrol programmatically to my datagrid:
I try previous solution and also
templateColumn.ItemTemplate=LoadTemplate("MediasTemplate.ascx");

I found some articles about how to add a template column to a datagrid from a usercontrol, but those articles don't describe how to retrieve the usercontrol in the itemdatabound event of the datagrid. You know I'm not new in .Net and so I set the ID of my usercontrol, but I can't find my usercontrol with e.Item.FindControl("MyusercontrolId") .

Thanks for helping me. Hope you understand what I try to do.

I found the solution : I use (myUserControl)e.Item.Controls[0].Controls[0] . Why : I don't know really .
