I have this code. Has zero effect on the column "style". Please help.

        Dim c As DataGridTextBoxColumn
        Dim ts As DataGridTableStyle

        Me.dgStyles.DataSource = MyStyleTable
        ts = New DataGridTableStyle
        ts.MappingName = "tstyle"

        c = New DataGridTextBoxColumn
        c.MappingName = "Style"
        c.Width = 0
        c.HeaderText = "Style"
        ts.GridColumnStyles.Add(c)
        Me.dgStyles.TableStyles.Add(ts)
       
        Me.dgStyles.RowHeadersVisible = True

        Me.dgStyles.ReadOnly = True

typically when i see no net effect when i am setting up a control, it means that either i forgot to call my method that sets up the control, or the control is being setup differently later in the execution.  Need more info to help.

are you assigning your styles to the grid?

Put this at the end of your code
Me.DataGrid1.TableStyles.Add(ts)

Yeah. I just don't get it. I have tried everything. I added the field names in manually (not with code) by draggin the element control onto the dataset and adding 8 column names. Could this have anything to do with it?

I got it working by fiddling around with the datatable instead.

ex.
MyStyleTable.PictureColumn.ColumnMapping = MappingType.Hidden

Thanks for your effort.
