I am trying to set the Columns for my datagrid (Winfoms Compact Framework). I can't seem to see a way to set this up.

The issue is that I am populating a DataTable from a webservice, and then in the code I bind it to the DataGrid. There are a few columns in this Datatable that I don't want to show, any ways to edit this? The datasource is not populate in the designer thus I am limited a little.

Here is an example of hiding columns (width = 0), using a table style:


    DataTable table; 

    

    DataGridTableStyle style = new DataGridTableStyle(); 

    style.MappingName = table.TableName; 

    

    DataGridTextBoxColumn column = new DataGridTextBoxColumn(); 

    column.MappingName = table.Columns[0].ColumnName; 

    column.Width = 0; 

    //Hide 

    

    style.GridColumnStyles.Add(column); 

    

    column = new DataGridTextBoxColumn(); 

    column.MappingName = table.Columns[1].ColumnName; 

    column.Width = 50; 

    //Show 

    

    this.DataGrid1.TableStyles.Clear(); 

    this.DataGrid1.TableStyles.Add(style); 

Open in new window

Ah that's what I was missing so basically I add styles for each column and set the width. Surely there must be an easier way of just having certain Columns?

Another possibility is to query (sql) only the fields you want to show in your datagrid

Unfortunately it's going over a webservice, which means I have no control on the dataset coming back and no control on the webservice.

Cheers
