I have a databind that returns all roles, the problem is would like to customize this control so that the actual role has all other columns included for example roleid, rolename, roledate etc.

the following only returns all roles and the header name is "item"
gvRoles.DataSource = System.Web.Security.Roles.GetAllRoles
gvRoles.DataBind()

    <asp:GridView ID="gvRoles" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="true" AutoGenerateDeleteButton="true" AutoGenerateEditButton="true" AutoGenerateSelectButton="true">
                        </asp:GridView>

 SqlDataAdapter Adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(Command);
            DataSet RolesDS = new DataSet();
            try
            {
                SqlConn.Open();
                Adapter.Fill(RolesDS);
                int i = 0;
                roles = new string[RolesDS.Tables[0].Rows.Count];
                foreach (DataRow role in RolesDS.Tables[0].Rows)
                {
                    roles[i] = role["RoleNames"].ToString();
                    i++;
                }
            }

I'm not exactly sure if I know what you mean. When you say "actual role" do you mean the selected role?

Cause in that case you will probably need to extend upon the gridview control, so that you have a different look for a selected row, or even a mouseover row for that matter.

Is that what you mean or am I totally off base here.

RoleNames is the only Column return, how can i also get RoleID, CreatedDate
to display on my gridview?

You will have to also return them, just don't display them, so instead of using autogeneratecolumns="true" turn it to false and use binding of columns to show what you want.

If you do that, you can show Rolenames by default and you will need to write some logic to make sure that when selected you also show RoleID and CreatedDate..
