"The data source for GridView with id 'GridView1' did not have any properties or attributes from which to generate columns.  Ensure that your data source has content."


If I look at the values held in result, it looks like everything gets populated but for some reason it crashes with the above error. when it hits gridview1.databind()

I have tried adding GridView1.AutoGenerateColumns = False but  and my webpage does load but there is no gridview visible
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load


        Dim ds As New DataSet
        ds.ReadXml("http://repecomm/xml/ftptransfers_01_2011.xml")

        Dim result = From q In ds.Tables(0).AsEnumerable
                     Where q.Item("id").ToString.StartsWith("Web")
                     Select New With {.id = q.Item("id")}

        GridView1.DataSource = result

        GridView1.DataBind()
        GridView1.AutoGenerateColumns = False

    End Sub

Open in new window

hi
can you post your aspx design code for gridview?

just try by setting, AutoGenerateColumns = True

If this is populating data and if you are using AutoGenerateColumns = False for GridView1 then you have to manually declare columns in <Columns> tag for the same.

You might have better luck with an XmlDataSource, and a valid XPath expression...

Try this:
        GridView1.DataSource = result.ToList()

Thanks for your suggestions. I eventually gave up on that method and ended up using xmldocument and searched through the elements instead
