I have a Windows program that I wrote in Visual Studio 2005 using C#.  It loops through a list of machine names and tries to contact them.  I would like to display the results in a grid format, but I can't figure out how to use a grid without a datasource.  I want a blank grid (except for headers), with a known number of columns that I can programmatically add rows to.  The data will not be retained when the program exits.  I've tried setting up a  Data Grid View with no data source and I can add columns in the designer, but I can't find a method that will allow me to create a new row.

You can do a few things:

1) Create an in-memory DataTable to contain the data, and bind the DataGridView to the table.

2) Create an list of objects, using Generics, and bind the DataGridView to the list.
