Hi,

I want to know how to delete certain rows from the datagrid depending on the column data. Like I have a column named Status. Under status I have data as "Available", "Unavailable". When I display the data, I want to select only "Available" and delete the rows which has "Unavailable" data at Status column. I am displaying the data from an XML file. Please let me know how I can get this done.

How are you loading the XML file into the datagrid (Manually or through Data Binding)?

Dim dsData As New DataSet()
filepath = "QCWorkQueue.xml"
dsData.ReadXml(filepath)
With dgData
      .DataSource = dsData
      .DataMember = "ProsWorkItem"
      .AllowSorting = True
End With

Oh, you are storing the data in a DataSet that is persisted to disk. In that case, you can use a DataView to "filter" the DataSet and only expose the records that meet a certain criteria, like this:

        Dim dsData As New DataSet()
        dsData.ReadXml("QCWorkQueue.xml")

        Dim dvData As New DataView(dsData.Tables("ProsWorkItem"))
        dvData.RowFilter = "column_name = 'Available'"

        With dgData
            .DataSource = dvData
            .DataMember = "ProsWorkItem"
            .AllowSorting = True
        End With

Please note that I am assuming that the name of your table is "ProsWorkItem." Also, be sure to replace "column_name" with the name of your status column.
