How to create multiple fixed rows with DataGrid?

Hey all,

I remember in old VB 6 that with the Flexgrid control (I think), you could specify how many fixed header rows you wanted up the top.

Unfortunately now that I am using the .NET datagrid I can no longer work out how to do this.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

Dwayne

Datagrid is a bounded control you must bound it to a datasource (Dataviewm, dataset,Datatable)
The bounded table contents are displayed in the datagrid

use the flexGrid Control .

Try this for datagrid
---------
 Private Sub AddRows(ByVal rows As Integer, ByRef Datagrd As DataGrid)
        Dim dview As New DataView
        Dim dtable As New DataTable("firstTable")

        dtable.Columns.Add("First")
        dtable.Columns.Add("Second")
        dtable.Columns.Add("Third")

        dview.Table = dtable
        Dim i As Integer
        For i = 0 To rows - 1
            dview.AddNew()
        Next
        Datagrd.DataSource = dview

    End Sub

Hey,

Thanks for that but it wasn't quite what I was after.

That only gives me one header row (where the first, second, third, etc. was)

What I want is to have 2 header rows (like you could do with the old flexgrid control from Visual Basic 6).  But from what I could see there is no Flexgrid control in VB .NET only the datagrid control so I was wondering how to have 2 header rows by using this?

Cheers!

Hey,

I have been trying out the flexgrid control recently but after a lot of failed tests and having done some more research I cannot get it to work.

The only problem is that the flexgrid control doesn't work with my XML dataset so I really need to use the VB .NET Datagrid control.

So do you know how to add 2 fixed header rows with this???

Cheers!

What to you really need  with datagrid?.
Can you explain your

you can create a table from the XMLDataset accroding to your need(2 fields and rows..)

then assign this table to the datagrid's datasource property

Well the flexgrid control has a property called FixedRows where I can make more then 1 row as a fixed header.

But the datagrid control doesn't have this option.  So I tried your suggestion of using that flexgrid control but it doesn't work with my ado .net data

Which means that I can't use that but have to use the .net datagrid control instead.  However with that I cannot find any fixedrows property and am wondering how else I could make 2 or more fixed rows with it?

Thanks!

Hi Visual_Pro

                     The datagrid control is a bounded control . it displays the  datasets or  datatable's we can't add a a fixed row or column . for that purposes microsoft gives the flexgrid control .
You can try this .
Read the rows from dataset individully and add it to flexgrid contol.

Oh I see.  That makes sense now.

Well if you wouldn't mind could you please give me a quick example of how to do that then?

Hello TheLearnedOne,

I am still active with this question.

I was just hoping someone might have been able to provide a code example for the solution that prakash suggested since I am not sure how to code that myself.

I was going to start a new question for it but then decided that since I need code for the solution to work someone else might as well so I was hoping someone would be kind enough to provide some code to illustrate what he was saying and then I can close it.

Cheers!
