Hi guys,

I need to create a dataset that mimicks the data I have in a gridview.  This is part of a custom sorting problem I am having.  

So far i have the code below, but it doesnt return the data that I see on my gridview.  Could someone please let me know how to copy the data??

Thanks in advance.
Phil

Dim dsCurrent As New DataSet
        dsCurrent.Tables.Add()
        For i As Integer = 0 To GridView1.Columns.Count - 1
            dsCurrent.Tables(0).Columns.Add()
        Next
 
        For Each r As UI.WebControls.GridViewRow In GridView1.Rows
            dsCurrent.Tables(0).Rows.Add()
            For i As Integer = 0 To r.Cells.Count - 1
                dsCurrent.Tables(0).Rows(dsCurrent.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1).Item(i) = r.DataItem(i)
            Next
        Next

if you need to get your datasource back from gridview then you can get it as following
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
dt = (DataTable)GridView1.DataSource;

now dt has all the data which you have bound with gridview.

Ive ended up just using session vars to store the dataset.  The datasource becomes inaccessible once the page has been bound and Im trying to access it at a later stage. thanks for the help anyway.. have some points
