Hi,

I'm having trouble getting a DataGridView to populate in this simple VB.NET forms application.

I'm going through, creating the dataset, adding columns and then rows, but when I run the program, no exceptions are thrown, but my datagrid view is completely empty.

Can anyone suggest what might be wrong here?

Cheers
Imports ToDoListLibrary
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
 
 
Public Class ToDoListUI
 
    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
 
        Dim toDoItem = New ToDoItem()
 
        toDoItem.ToDoItemDoneProperty() = False
        toDoItem.ToDoItemDoneDateTimeProperty() = DateTime.Now
        toDoItem.ToDoItemDoByDateTimeProperty() = DateTime.Now
        toDoItem.ToDoItemTextProperty() = ""
        toDoItem.ToDoItemPriorityProperty() = toDoItem.ToDoItemPriorityProperty().High
 
        Dim toDoList = New ToDoList()
 
        toDoList.ToDoItemListProperty().Add(toDoItem)
 
 
        Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet()
 
        Dim tb As DataTable = ds.Tables.Add()
 
        tb.Columns.Add("ToDoItemDone", GetType(Boolean))
        tb.Columns.Add("ToDoItemDoneDateTime", GetType(DateTime))
        tb.Columns.Add("ToDoItemDoByDateTime", GetType(DateTime))
        tb.Columns.Add("ToDoItemText", GetType(String))
        tb.Columns.Add("ToDoItemPriority", GetType(ToDoItem.ToDoItemPriority))
 
 
        For Each toDo As ToDoItem In toDoList.ToDoItemListProperty()
 
            tb.Rows.Add(toDo.ToDoItemDoneProperty, toDo.ToDoItemDoneDateTimeProperty, _
                         toDo.ToDoItemDoByDateTimeProperty, toDo.ToDoItemTextProperty, _
                         toDo.ToDoItemPriorityProperty)
        Next
 
        m_toDoListUIDataGridView.DataSource = ds.DefaultViewManager
 
    End Sub
 
 
End Class

Hi Cognize,

Try to use this line:

m_toDoListUIDataGridView.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)

or

m_toDoListUIDataGridView.DataSource = dt

Regards,

Falcko
