Create a Disconnected Dataset bound to a Datagrid

I am forced to gather information from methods of a COM object, and display it in a datagrid. Of course the big problem is - NO Database! Boy is it hard to find help on this one. I thought I would ask you gurus.

How to I manually create and populate a dataset table & bind it to a noneditable datagrid (if that matters)? I am amazed at how difficult this seems. I have found other solutions to populate the datagrid, but they all have little quirks. I was told that datagrids should really be bound to datsets. Any ideas?

Hi, Try this:

 Dim ds As New DataSet

   Private Sub FilldsManually_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

      Dim dt As New DataTable
      Dim dr As DataRow

      'Create dataTable
      dt.Columns.Add("MyFirstColumn")
      dt.Columns.Add("MySecondColumn")

      'Create DataRow
      dr = dt.NewRow
      dr("MyFirstColumn") = "Hello"
      dr("MySecondColumn") = "Bye"
      dt.Rows.Add(dr)

      ds.Tables.Add(dt)

      DataGrid1.DataSource = ds

   End Sub

   Private Sub AddRow_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
      Dim dr As DataRow


      'Create DataRow
      dr = ds.Tables(0).NewRow
      dr("MyFirstColumn") = "Hello"
      dr("MySecondColumn") = "Bye"
      ds.Tables(0).Rows.Add(dr)

   End Sub

Oh sure. Make it seem that simple!
Looks like it works, but I am getting something new in my datagrid I have not seen before.

It shows up with just a plus sign. When I click on it, it shows me "Table1". When I click on Table 1, the data fills out the datagrid. Any idea why it is doing this?

sorry, I forget this line:

DataGrid1.DataSource = ds
DataGrid1.DataMember = ds.Tables(0).TableName.ToString

Excellent!
I actually came back out to tell you I figured it out (with my tail between my legs). Thanks for your help. This is exactly what I needed!
