Hi Experts.

Im still Brand new at ASP.NET

I have created a datagrid from an sql database.

<asp:DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="true" Width="550px" AlternatingItemStyle-BackColor="Gainsboro"  CellPadding="3" DataSource="<%# Get_Students1.DefaultView %>" Enabled="true" ID="Grid1" runat="server" ShowFooter="false" ShowHeader="false" gridline="Both"></asp:DataGrid>

It comes out real good.

The question is, how do I only show the columns that I want from the stored procedure.

I have say column a,b,c,d,e,f and I only want to show b,c and d in the datagrid.

How do I get just those columns out?

Cheers

set AutoGenerateColumns="false"

and then add columns like:

        <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False">
            <Columns>
                <asp:checkboxfield DataField="Column1Flag" HeaderText="MyFlag1">
                </asp:checkboxfield>
            </Columns>
        </asp:GridView>

if you set AutoGenerateColumns="false" and add the columns in your aspx file
<Columns>
                <asp:BoundField DataField="ColumnNameHere" HeaderText="HeaderTextHere"
                   SortExpression="ColumnNameHere" />
                <asp:BoundField DataField="ColumnNameHere" HeaderText="HeaderHere" SortExpression="ColumnNameHere" />
            </Columns>
that will display the selected columns only

If you don't like adding columns directly on code you can use the grid designer.

At the designer, on the top right corner of the grid you'll find the "Common GridView Tasks" where you have the "Edit Columns..."
