I am trying to compile a sample application that is a datagrid which is connected to a dataset (which is a table in database).

I've connected all the elements but failed to fill in data in the grid (from the table) --
How do I accomplish that?

I think your question is rather vague as it does not tell which technique your're employing to "connect" your stuff.
A little code will be welcome here...

Hard so post a code,. because all I did was in design time.
In delphi connecting a datagrid to database done visually,. I thought that in vs vb as well... (though I probably was mistaken)

In design time, I created a wince application, put a datagrid on the fom. Created a database with a table...
Assigned DataSet,. And databinding, and created a datamember which is the table from the database,. in the dataset I specified the database, and datamember.

Now I would like to display a grid with the table data in it.

Sorry I for some odd reason thought you was using ASP.NET. Sounds like u're building a Windows app.
Question for you: Does the database itself has data in it?

Here is what i did, might help you. I'm using VS 2008.
So I dragged a DataGridview on my form, added a Project Datasource as prompted, Selected a table and Boom I got data bound the grid...

I am using .NET Compact Framework.
It doesn't have the DataGridView only DataGrid... But I think it is the same as the datagridview.
I selected a database and a table in the DataSetBindingSource, and assigned the Grid to it.

If that is enough why don't I see the data when running the application?
The database is with data in it of course...

Set the datasource of the datagrid in the form load event of the form.

For example put this code in the Form Load Event:

Datagrid1.Datasource = Dataset.Table("YourTable")

A little progress...

I've designed in design time, the datasource to point to the table,. Yet when running the code it raises an exception saying that the table doesn't exist (although I've designed a reference to it)
