I am new to VB 2005. I have created a new form in VB.NET 2005 and placed  datagridview on the form.
its property AllowUserToAddRows is set to true and placed a button on form. It shows data on the grid properly and allows to add rows but these rows are not reflected in database table.  how can I Add new Rows to Datagridview dynamically and these new rows should be Added in database table automatically just like in datagrid in VB6. I also want whenever any cell is updated its values should be updated in database table. How can we make some columns editable and others are not.


Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Public Class Form1
    Private LawCon As SqlConnection
    Private LawDa As SqlDataAdapter
    Private LawDs As DataSet
    Private Lawcmd As SqlCommand
 
 
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        LawCon = New SqlConnection("server=MITTAL;uid=sa;pwd=;database=mys")
        LawDa = New SqlDataAdapter("select * from Law1", LawCon)
        LawDs = New DataSet()
        LawDa.Fill(LawDs, "Laws")       
        DataGridView1.DataSource = LawDs.Tables("Laws")
        DataGridView1.Refresh()
 
 
    End Sub

You need to setup a DataTableAdapter to achieve this functionality. You would configure this adapter by providing the appropriate SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT commands along with their parameters. Most of the times, you just need to provide the select command and the adapter automatically generates the other commands for you if the table has a primary key. You also need a dataset to hold the values in memory and you may be using it already with your datagridview. When properly configured, calling the DataTableAdapter.Update(DataSet) function saves all the changes (inserts, deletes, modifications) to the database.

Hope it helps
