My Data looks like this
(Return DataSet)
Attribute - AttributeValue - AttributeDate
FirstName          Joe                    10/10/2007
Last Name         Doe                   10/10/2007

The attributes are rows, but in my app i need to make these Columns in my Gridview.
Gridview should look like this:
FirstName    LastName      
Joe                  Doe

How can i bind the data set to my gridview when dataset returns my rows (when i need this as columns)?

Here ds refers to DataSet.

foreach(DataColumn dc in ds.Tables[0].Columns)
{
         dataGridView1.Columns.Add(dc.ColumnName, dc.ColumnName);
}
foreach (DataRow dr in ds.Tables[0].Rows)
{
         dataGridView1.Rows.Add(dr.ItemArray);
}
dataGridView1.Show();

Let me know for further assistance.

I get the following errors:

value of type 'String' cannot be converted to 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataControlField'.
too many arguments to 'Public Sub Add(field As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataControlField)'.
'Add' is not a member of 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowCollection'.

Apologies Dude, the above code works for windows application. The following code you need to use
to bind DataSet to a Grid ...

GridView1.DataSource = ds.Tables[0];
GridView1.DataBind();

Let me know for further assistance.

You can try one trick

As you have Dataset with you ...right?

You can create one new datatable
Lik

dim dt as Datatable

Then just loop the dataset , and add the first row as column in the datatable like

dt.columns.Add( value here)

and for second column add one record in datatable

 For Each dr In ds.Tables(0).Rows
            If dt.Columns.Add(dr.Item(0)) = "AttributeName" Then
             MyGridView.add.columns(dt.rows.item(0))
            End IF
