Hi there,

Can anybody tell me if its possible to have ROW HEADERS rather than column headers, i can't seem to find it. I need to add these manually

Also is it possible to bind it to an XML file i have?

The xml file contains other data also.... so i would need to exclude that...

The information that i want to display doesn't really need to binded to a database ... so is it possible to add to the grid in code?

Any help or information would be really appreciated

Thanks in advance

Ian

Hi ianinspain,

You need to create an empty dataset, then use the .LoadXML("Path\filename.xml") method to load the xml data into the dataset, this can then be bound to the grid to display. You can modify the dataset as much as you like in order to remove some of the information, it will of course not be reflected in the file unless you use .WriteXML() to write it back.

wow ... thanks thats great! I will take a look now..

Is it also possible to add ROW headers .. like descriptions i.e.


Total        89
Pending    20
Awaiting   11

etd.. i.e the row headers are descriptions for each row...

Do i have to force this information into the xml file to get it to print it .... ??

ianinspain,

Yes you would, there is no RowHeaders collection like the ColumnHeaders so you would need to manipulate the data to do this in some fashion I am afraid.

that will work for datagridview. I did not try for the datagrid

Private Sub dataGridView1_RowPostPaint(ByVal sender As Object, _
  ByVal e As DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventArgs) _
    Handles dataGridView1.RowPostPaint

  ' Paint the row number on the row header.
  ' The using statement automatically disposes the brush.

Using b As SolidBrush = _
    New SolidBrush(dataGridView1.RowHeadersDefaultCellStyle.ForeColor)

  e.Graphics.DrawString( _
    e.RowIndex.ToString(System.Globalization.CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture), _
    e.CellStyle.Font, _
    b, _
    e.RowBounds.Location.X + 20, _
    e.RowBounds.Location.Y + 4)

End Using

End Sub
