In VB.NET 2005, how can I have a DataGridViewButtonColumn display different text for every row based on a sql recordset?


I am using VB.NET 2005.
I have a form with a datagridview that is being populated by a datatable filled with results from a sql resultset.
One of my columns is a DataGridViewButtonColumn.
I want the text for each one of the buttons to display the value that is returned from sql.
I know how to have the button cell in every row to display the same text, but i don't want that. I want it to display the different results from sql.

Anyone know how to do this?

Thank you

That's suppose to be the default behavior for the DataGridViewButtonColumn.   In fact, you'd have to manually set the UseColumnTextForButtonValue property to True in order override the defaults.

Show us a bit of code on how you've got the data bound to the control

I changed the value of UseColumnTextForButtonValue  and never changed it back to see what happened with the default value.  I was just over thinking it.....
