I have a datagridview where I insert a button.

I call the same function many times which gets a dataset from a db, then sets it to the grid.
After that I add the button with the code below.

Each time I call the function, a new button is created, how do I only do it if it does not exist?

        Dim buttons As New DataGridViewButtonColumn()
        With buttons
            .HeaderText = "Delete"
            .Text = "Delete"
            .UseColumnTextForButtonValue = True
            .AutoSizeMode = DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnMode.DisplayedCells
            .FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Standard
            .DisplayIndex = 0
        End With

U have to add this condition before adding the column to the Grid

the Logic is as follows :
(let DataGridView1 )

        'Here is ur code for creating a New Button Column
        Dim buttons As New DataGridViewButtonColumn()
        With buttons
            .HeaderText = "Delete"
            .Text = "Delete"
            .UseColumnTextForButtonValue = True
            .AutoSizeMode = DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnMode.DisplayedCells
            .FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Standard
            .DisplayIndex = 0
        End With

        'Here is the code for checking the existance of the column in the grid view
        Dim pbFound As Boolean = False
        Dim piCnt As Int16 = 0

        While (Not (pbFound) And (piCnt <= (DataGridView1.Columns.Count - 1)))

            If (DataGridView1.Columns(piCnt).HeaderText = "Delete") Then
                pbFound = True
            End If
            piCnt = piCnt + 1
        End While
        'If column does not exists in the datagridview1 then adding it to our datagridview1
        If (pbFound = false ) Then
            DataGridView1.Columns.Add(buttons)
        End If
