Hi All

I tried to bind some values to the gridview from the database and it uses a primary key to join another table.

What i need is i donn wann to display the primary key in the gridview.

I have tried various properties for the gridviews like

GridView1.Columns.RemoveAt(0);

GridView1.Columns[0].Visible = false ;

Finally i got the

System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection.
protected void btnSearchMain_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        
        if (rbtnCollege.Checked == true)
        {
            SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter("select EDU_College.CId as 'College Number',EDU_College.CName as 'College Name',EDU_College.CAddressLine1 As 'College Address',EDU_City.City from EDU_College join EDU_City on EDU_City.CityId=EDU_College.CF_CityId where EDU_College.CName like '%" + txtSearchMain.Text + "%'", Conn);            
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            da.Fill(dt);
            GridView1.DataSource = dt;
           //GridView1.Columns.RemoveAt(1);
            //GridView1.Columns.RemoveAt(GetIndex(GridView1, "CId"));
            GridView1.Columns[1].Visible = false;
            GridView1.DataBind();
            GridView1.Columns[1].Visible = false;
        }
        else
        {
            SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter("select EDU_College.CId as 'College Number',EDU_College.CName as 'College Name',EDU_College.CAddressLine1 As 'College Address',EDU_City.City as City from EDU_College join EDU_City on EDU_City.CityId=EDU_College.CF_CityId where EDU_City.City like '%" + txtSearchMain.Text + "%'", Conn);            
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();            
            da.Fill(dt);                        
            GridView1.DataSource = dt;
            //GridView1.Columns.RemoveAt(1);
            GridView1.DataBind();
 
        }
    }

You'll get the error if u have set the gridview autogeneratecolumns = true

Try setting the Datakey property of the gridview to the primary key column of datatable.

Hi,

Do a test before you remove the Column. E.g if GridView1.Columns.Count() > 0 then remove it. Atleast that will narrow down the causes of the problem if it does return a count of 0.

The feature of gridview says that you when u have set Autogeneratecolumns=true GridView1.Columns.Count() will give u nothing....

When u r setting autogeneratecolumns = false

then u have to manually add columns to ur gridview..
