you have to add the dataset into you designer
- Set the datasource
- right click on the dataset and edit the columns

because you are binding it later then the columns from datagridview are redefined

I am creating the columns in the designer and binding at run time, not in the designer.

wen you bind at the runtime then the designed columns are lost. On bind at runtime the Columns are automatically redefined.

you can do the follow on you code:

DataGridViewColumn[] columns = new DataGridViewColumn[dataGridView1.Columns.Count];
 

dataGridView1.DataSource = ...;

dataGridView1.DataMember = ...;
 

dataGridView1.Columns.CopyTo( columns, 0 );

dataGridView1.Columns.Clear();

dataGridView1.Columns.AddRange(columns);

Open in new window

Isn't there a way to stop that from happening?  I thought that there was a flag that you could set or something.

This cannot be treated as the right solution unless the person who has questioned this has accepted this.  I have the same problem and I do not think that this is the solution for this.
