I have a gridview (Gridview1) defined as follows:-

<asp: GridView ID="Gridview1" runat = "server" AutoGenerateColumns="false" DataSourceID="ObjectDataSource1">
<Columns>
</Columns>
</asp:Gridview>

and columns dynamically added using

private void BuildGridView()
{
BoundField column1 = new BoundField();
column1.DataField = "ID";
column1.HeaderText = "ID"
GridView1.Columns.Add(column1);

BoundField column2 = new BoundField();
column2.DataField = "FirstName";
column2.HeaderText = "FirstName"
GridView1.Columns.Add(column2);

}
 
How do I "tidy up" this code (using eg "foreach") so I do not have to specify each individual column in the objectdatasouce.

 (ie how do I automatically bind all the columns in the objectdatasource?)

Thanks !

Set autogeneratecolumns to true...

GridView1.AutoGenerateColumns = True

and drop all the other code.
