Displaying data from Access in VB custom DataGridView

Hello,

I have two forms in my applications form Managing Employees and the Courses that participate.

The first from is the one in which i add a new employee in the database and associate the specific employee with available courses. On this form, a datagridview is responsible for binding the courses with the trainee. The datagridview has the following 5 columns.

1) Course Name - combobox - databound

2)Course Type - combobox -databound

3)From Date -DateTimePicker

4)To Date - DateTimePicker

5)Course Provider - Textbox

the above databound comboboxes get date from a dataset (dsCourses)

This form works fine, i can add a new trainee to the database and also i can enroll the specific employee to various courses.

So far so good.

I have  a second form though, that i wish to use for editing the employee information such as enrolled courses e.t.c

What i have done so far, is to create the same custom datagridview as above, but my problem is that i don't know how to fill the datagrid with the courses that the specific employee is enrolled to.

My problem is not the SQL statement to retrieve the data, but rather the way that i will fill the datagridview.

Can you please provide me with some suggestions?

 

Thank you in advanced.

Hi,

You can fill up data in the following way:

private void OnFormLoad(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   // Create adapter to get data source
   CustomersTableAdapter adapter = new CustomersTableAdapter();
   // Get data set instance
   CustomersDataSet customers = new CustomersDataSet();
   // Fill data set   adapter.Fill(customers);
   // Bind binding source to the data set
   m_CustomersBinding source.DataSource = customers;
   // Bind grid to the Customers table within the data source
   m_Grid.DataSource = m_CustomersBinding source;
   m_Grid.DataMember = "Customers";
}

Alternatively, if the binding source is bound to a collection of data collections, such as a data set, then you can refine what part of the data source you want to bind to using the DataMember property:

private void OnFormLoad(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   // Create adapter to get data source
   CustomersTableAdapter adapter = new CustomersTableAdapter();
   // Get data set instance
   CustomersDataSet customers = new CustomersDataSet();
   // Fill data set   adapter.Fill(customers);
   // Bind binding source to the data set
   m_CustomersBinding source.DataSource = customers;
   // Bind grid to the Customers table within the data source
   m_Grid.DataSource = m_CustomersBinding source;
   m_Grid.DataMember = "Customers";
}
