Convert Datatable to Ilist

I have a RadGrid project that uses drag and drop with IList Data handling the data transfers.

My problem is that I need to populate one of the grids with data FIRST.  So...

My attached code will populate my grid using a datatable.

What I NEED to do is convert the Datatable to an IList named ShippedOrdersStore and use that as the datasource.
Protected Sub grdCollateral_NeedDataSource(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs)
        Dim objConn1 As SqlConnection
        objConn1 = New SqlConnection(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("ConnPortal"))
        Dim oCom1 As SqlCommand
        oCom1 = New SqlCommand
        oCom1.Connection = objConn1
        oCom1.CommandText = "sp_cfa_TestCollateral"
        oCom1.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
        Dim dA As SqlDataAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter(oCom1)
        Dim myDataTable As DataTable = New DataTable()
        objConn1.Open()
        Try
            dA.Fill(myDataTable)
        Finally
            objConn1.Close()
        End Try
        grdCollateral.DataSource = myDataTable.DefaultView
        grdCollateral.GroupingSettings.CaseSensitive = False
        objConn1.Dispose()
        oCom1.Dispose()
        oCom1 = Nothing
    End Sub
