Hi sepknow

Use nameOfDataGridView.DataBind() to refresh the data being displayed.


Hi Michael,
There is no DataBind method in DataGridView. Is there?

No, sorry... I've just been having a look for the solution... I'll let you know if I come up with anything!

Hi, if you have datagrid on same form and or in same application where you are updating the underlying datasource then it is simple , just after updating the datastore .. refill the datatable or datasource which you are using to bind with gridView.

but if data is being updated from a different application and you are showing in another application then it would be better to write code in form activate event as well as use a timer which will check the datastore after regular intervals and will keep fresh data available on the gridview.

in case of activate event , as user navigate to another form , you may minimize the form and when user comes back and maximize the form , it will refresh the girdview.

Feel free for any question.
