I am binding a dataset to a datagridview
in it there is a varbinary field which dsplays as a picture
if the field is null not problem but if It is not null then it crashed the datagrid
I want to edit teh dataset before i bind it,
if it is NULL then i want to show ""
if it is not null i want to just show"Encrypted Password"

I am ne to dotnet so I am relatively clueless where to start
where is what I have this far

 
Dim da As SqlDataAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter("Select * from security whereofficerid='" & ComboBox1.SelectedValue.ToString() & "'" & _
            " and pmrespersonid = '" & TextBox2.Text & "'", cn)
            Dim DS As DataSet = New DataSet
            da.Fill(DS)
 
            DataGridView1.DataSource = DS.Tables(0)
            DS.Dispose()
            cn.Close()

You can do that with this statement

iif(isdbnull(field), "", "Encrypt Password")

Now you need to write this code in an event so that this code executes for each row.

I would think that you could do some query magic, like this:


        ' Add a reference to System.Configuration to the project.
        ' Add Imports System.Configuration at the top of the code module, to use System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.
        ' Store the connection string in an app.config file:
        '    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
        '    <configuration>
        '      <connectionStrings>
        '       <add name="MyDatabase" connectionString="Connection string goes here" />
        '      </connectionStrings>
        '    </configuration>
 
        Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("MyDatabase").ConnectionString
        Dim commandText As String = String.Format("Select Field1, Field2, Case When BinaryField IS NOT NULL THEN 'Encrypted Password' ELSE '' END " & _
            "From security where officerid='{0}' " & _
                    " and pmrespersonid = '{0}' ", ComboBox1.SelectedValue.ToString(), TextBox2.Text)
        Using da As New SqlDataAdapter(commandText, connectionString)
 
            ' Create a single DataTable
            Dim dt As New DataTable()
 
            ' Fill the DataTable with the query data.
            da.Fill(dt)
 
            ' Bind the data to the grid.
            DataGridView1.DataSource = dt
        End Using
