Hi experts,
   i'm struggling with populating datagridview using values stored in my list. so for instance,
   
        Dim inward As New List(Of InwardGoods)
        Dim strDate As Date = dtp1.Value

        inward = InwardGoods_Sigs.GetInwardGoodslist(strDate.ToShortDateString)

i have these codes , and a dgvReceipt defined, how do i populate it with the values in inward? any easy way? any help would be great

nothing happened, although when i run debug inward did have the table values in there. heres my code in form.vb


        dgvReceipt.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Vertical
        dgvReceipt.SelectionMode = DataGridViewSelectionMode.FullRowSelect
        dgvReceipt.ReadOnly = True


        dgvReceipt.Columns.Add("username", "Name")
        dgvReceipt.Columns.Add("InwardTime", "Inward Time")
        dgvReceipt.Columns.Add("SignTime", "Time Signed")
        dgvReceipt.Columns.Add("sgiReceive", "Person Signed")
        dgvReceipt.Columns.Add("AddNote", "Notes")
        dgvReceipt.Columns.Add("ticketnumber", "Ticket Number")

        Dim inward As New List(Of InwardGoods)
        Dim strDate As Date = dtp1.Value

        inward = InwardGoods_Sigs.GetInwardGoodslist()

        dgvReceipt.DataSource = inward


and heres the code i have in shared function

    Public Shared Function GetInwardGoodslist() As List(Of InwardGoods)
        Dim inwardgood As New InwardGoods
        Dim connection As OdbcConnection = DatabaseConnection.VisionDB()
        Dim selectStatement As String

        selectStatement = "SELECT TicketNumber, InwardTime, SignTime, InwardTo, SigReceive, AddNotes " _
                & "FROM InwardGoods " 
     
        Dim selectCommand As New OdbcCommand(selectStatement, connection)
        connection.Open()
        Dim reader As OdbcDataReader = selectCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)
        Dim inward As New List(Of InwardGoods)
        Do While reader.Read
            Dim iu As New InwardGoods
            iu.TicketNumber = reader.GetValue(0)
            iu.InwardTime = reader.GetValue(1)
            iu.SignTime = reader.GetValue(2)
            iu.InwardTo = reader.GetValue(3)
            iu.SigReceive = reader.GetValue(4)
            iu.AddNote = reader.GetValue(5)
            inward.Add(iu)
        Loop
        reader.Close()

        Return inward
    End Function

Here is the link I referred to:

The code in Using Objects section works fine in my testing using List.
