I am trying to add content to a datagrid.

I was under the impression that the only way to do this is by adding data from a datatabel or dataset.

How do you create either from scratch, give column names, then fill with data.

I want it to look like this

"ID", "name", "phone number"
1, "jack", "555-5555"
2, "joe", "555-4444"

I think after I have that, I can add it to a datagrid.

Thanks

       Dim ds As New DataSet
        Dim dr As DataRow

        'Add a new table to the dataset
        ds.Tables.Add()

        'Create the columns in the data table
        ds.Tables(0).Columns.Add("ID")
        ds.Tables(0).Columns.Add("name")
        ds.Tables(0).Columns.Add("phone number")

        'Create a new row for the data table
        dr = ds.Tables(0).NewRow

        'Set the values for the row
        dr.Item("ID") = 1
        dr.Item("name") = "John Doe"
        dr.Item("phone number") = "555-5555"

        'Add the row to the table
        ds.Tables(0).Rows.Add(dr)

        'Repeat as necessary

        'Bind the dataset to the datagrid
        DataGrid1.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)

I am going to create it on the fly as an internal place to store info for my app.
I was using recordsets in vb6.

If you want to format some members when you set the data source how do you do that,
since nothing looped, you can't look at every member?
