Data source is an invalid type. It must be either an IListSource, IEnumerable, or IDataSource.

I have a webpart that I deployed but when I run it, I get the attached Stack Trace:

Below is the code

        private string _myProperty = null;

        SPSite mySite = SPContext.Current.Site;
        SPWeb myWeb;
        SPList myList;

        GridView myGridView = new GridView();

I think it should be myGridView.DataSource = myList.Items; in Render, as follows:

        protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer)
        {
            SPSite mySite = SPContext.Current.Site;
            SPWeb myWeb = SPContext.Current.Web;
            SPList myList = myWeb.Lists["HOTLINE"];

            myGridView.DataSource = myList.Items;
            //spDataSource.List = myList;
            //SPGridView1.DataSource = spDataSource;
            myGridView.DataBind();
            //SPGridView1.DataBind();
            myGridView.RenderControl(writer);
            //SPGridView1.RenderControl(writer);
        }

U cant actually directly use SPList as ur gridview datasource (in line:187).

Bind it this way.

wdosonjos,
That did not work.  I get this error:

That's what I tried first but then I got this error: Value does not fall within the expected range.

Please try:

        protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer)
        {

            SPWeb myWeb = SPContext.Current.Web;
            SPList myList = myWeb.Lists["HOTLINE"];

            myGridView.DataSource = myList.Items.List;
            //spDataSource.List = myList;
            //SPGridView1.DataSource = spDataSource;

It rendered data in a gridview to the page but it had extra columns that I've never seen before nor did I create. Ex: Xml,uniquID,RecurrenceID,MissingReuquiredFields,etc.

set AutoGenerateColumns="false" in aspx of the gridview

IsaacSharePoint Client Side DeveloperAuthor Commented:
it is already false...

wdosanjosCommented:
Did it display your data columns along with the extra columns?

Also, I'm not sure how it displayed the extra columns if AutoGenerateColumns is set to false.
