Hey,

I'm using a gridview to display data from a database but I want to do this programmatically and with using templatefields.

I set up the gridview (FileManagerGrid) with the following columns:
                    <Columns>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Select">
                            <EditItemTemplate>
                                <asp:CheckBox ID="SelectCheckBox" runat="server" />
                            </EditItemTemplate>
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:CheckBox ID="SelectCheckBox" runat="server" />
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="File/FolderID" Visible="False">
                            <EditItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="FileFolderIDLabel" runat="server" />
                            </EditItemTemplate>
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="FileFolderIDLabel" runat="server" />
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="File/Folder">
                            <EditItemTemplate>
                                <asp:TextBox ID="FileFolderNameTextB" runat="server" />
                            </EditItemTemplate>
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:TextBox ID="FileFolderNameTextB" runat="server" />
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="IsFolder" Visible="False">
                            <EditItemTemplate>
                                <asp:CheckBox ID="IsFolderCheckBox" runat="server" />
                            </EditItemTemplate>
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:CheckBox ID="IsFolderCheckBox" runat="server" />
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                    </Columns>

I have the values stored in a DataTable which I get on Page_Load but I don't know how to set the values of the templatefield's with their relevant value in the DataTable.

Thanks for the quick reply,

I've done the following

        int i = 0;

        foreach (DataRow r in FileFolderTable.Rows)
        {
            FileManagerGrid.
            ((Label)FileManagerGrid.Rows[i].FindControl("FileFolderIDLabel")).Text =
                r["FileFolderID"].ToString();
            ((Label)FileManagerGrid.Rows[i].FindControl("ParentFolderIDLabel")).Text =
                r["ParentFolderID"].ToString();
            ((TextBox)FileManagerGrid.Rows[i].FindControl("FileFolderNameTextB")).Text =
                r["FileFolderName"].ToString();
            ((TextBox)FileManagerGrid.Rows[i].FindControl("FileDescriptionTextB")).Text =
                r["Description"].ToString();
            ((Label)FileManagerGrid.Rows[i].FindControl("FileTypeLabel")).Text =
                r["DateUploaded"].ToString();
            ((Label)FileManagerGrid.Rows[i].FindControl("FileSizeLabel")).Text =
                r["Title"].ToString();
            ((Label)FileManagerGrid.Rows[i].FindControl("DateLabel")).Text =
                r["FileType"].ToString();
            ((CheckBox)FileManagerGrid.Rows[i].FindControl("IsFolderCheckBox")).Checked =
                Boolean.Parse(r["IsFolder"].ToString());

            i++;

in Page_Load, but I need to insert a row first. I'm not sure how to do this? Is there any Gridview.Insert type of function?
