The GridLineDataGridView learning curve... Part 3

Ok, so I have my GridLineDataGridView in place and it displays the data correctly and suitable, TO START WITH.

Then comes the problem. When I change directory and call gridRefresh() to update the dataset and (hopefully) redraw the grid, I get some unpredictable results. The contents of the new directory aren't displayed.

What command should I use to re-draw the grid? I've tried GridLineDataGridView.redraw() but that just generated a null exception error.

Public Sub gridRefresh()
 
		Dim dt As New DataTable()
		dt.Columns.Add("Original Name")
		dt.Columns.Add("New Name")
 
		Dim pattern As String = patternText.Text
		If pattern.LastIndexOf("(") >= 0 Then
			pattern = pattern.Substring(0, pattern.LastIndexOf("("))
		End If
 
		Try
 
			Dim dirInfo As New DirectoryInfo(dirText.Text)
			Dim fileInfos() As FileInfo
			Dim fileName As String
			Dim extIndex As Integer
 
			fileInfos = dirInfo.GetFiles(pattern)
 
			For Each fileInfo As FileInfo In fileInfos
				extIndex = fileInfo.Name.LastIndexOf(".")
				fileName = fileInfo.Name.Substring(0, extIndex)
				dt.Rows.Add(fileInfo.Name, fileName)
			Next fileInfo
 
			frGrid.DataSource = dt
			setRegKey(dirText.Text)
 
		Catch ex As Exception
 
			frStatusText.Text = ex.ToString
 
		End Try
 
		frGrid.Focus()
 
	End Sub

not so sure about gridline, but it doesn't look like you are rebinding the grid after you set the new datasource. Focus, usually doesn't cut it. is there a databind method, or maybe thats what redraw is.

something like:
frGrid.DataSource = dt
setRegKey(dirText.Text)
frGrid.DataBind()

Finally I've settled on the DataGridView.rows.clear() method followed by a complete refresh. This seems to work ok.
