Hi

I have the following VB.NET code to populate a gridview (in a windows application form):

        Dim NotfData As New DataSet
        NotfData = MC.DB(NoftDataSQL()) 'this will populate "NotfData.Tables(0)" with Data

        Notf_Grid.Columns.Add("NotfCount", "No.")
        Notf_Grid.Columns.Add("NotfLink", "Notification Link")
        Notf_Grid.Columns.Add("NotfID", "Notification ID")

        For i = 0 To NotfData.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
            Notf_Grid.Rows.Add((i + 1).ToString, NotfData.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("Notf. Link"), NotfData.Tables(0).Rows(i).Item("Notf. ID"))
        Next

        Notf_Grid.Columns(0).AutoSizeMode = System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnMode.AllCells
        Notf_Grid.Columns(1).AutoSizeMode = System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnMode.AllCells
        Notf_Grid.Columns(2).Visible = False

Open in new window


I have three questions:

Question 1: How can I make Notf_Grid.Columns(1) formats its rows values into Hyperlinks instead of pure text?

Question 2: How can I add an (OnClick) event handler for each row/cell of this [Notf_Grid]?

Question 3: How can I format the text (bold, italic, underline ... etc.) of any cell in this [Notf_Grid]

1) Check the AddLinkColumn method in below example

2) Handle the CellClick and SelectionChanged events

3) Use the CellFormatting event
