DataGridView DataSource BindingList?

I have a datagridview bound to a bindinglist, however the datagridview only shows a char count of 9 digits of the total, Not the actual total number.
I'm trying to eliminate using a dataset/datatable and just add columns to the datagridview dynamically. The datagridview will only have one row showing without column or row headers.

          BindingList<string> blist = new BindingList<string>();

          foreach (DataColumn col in DataSet1.Tables[0].Columns)
          {
                 string total = DataSet1.Tables[0].Compute("Sum(" + col.ColumnName + ")", "ID > 0").ToString();
                 blist.Add(total);
          }
         
          dataGridView1.AutoGenerateColumns = true;
          dataGridView1.DataSource = blist;

I do´nt see the advantage from DataBound Dgv for this situation.

Not DataBound Dgv is too easy to manage.

1 - Generate an array of Columns you want to compute and add column names to Dgv:

   Dim Cnames = String.Split("Valor1,Valor2,Valor3,Valor4") 'Valor1 ... are columns to compute
   Dim Values (cnames.length -1)  as double ' To Store Totals
   For each name in Cnames
         dgv.columns.add( new DataGridviewTextBoxcolumn(Name) with {.Width = 80, .Format= ....}
   next

2 - Compute all values and add to Dgv:

   for earch row in myTable.Select("id>0")
        for n=0 to cnames.length -1
             dim v = row(cnames(n))
             if v isnot dbnull.value then values(n) += ctype(v,double)
        next
   next
   Dgv.Rows.clear
   Dgv.Rows.Add (values)

- I wrote code on Vb, but I think concept is clear.

I think you should create model class:
public class StringValue{
public string Value{get;set;}
}

Open in new window

and use this:
BindingList<StringValue> blist = new BindingList<StringValue>();

          foreach (DataColumn col in DataSet1.Tables[0].Columns)
          {
                 string total = DataSet1.Tables[0].Compute("Sum(" + col.ColumnName + ")", "ID > 0").ToString();
                 blist.Add(new StringValue(){Value=total});
          }
         
          dataGridView1.AutoGenerateColumns = true;
          dataGridView1.DataSource = blist; 

Open in new window


or you can use linq:
dataGridView1.DataSource = blist.Select(x => new { Value = x }).ToList();

Open in new window
