I have a Datagridview which I would like to load from XML into the DATAGRIDVIEW AND I want to freeze the name Column. I can load a xml file no problem using basic datagrid. But I donot think Datagid can freeze a column if it can please show me
here is datagrid
 Public Sub xmldatagrid()

            Dim ds As New DataSet

            ds.ReadXml("", XmlReadMode.InferSchema)
            DataGrid1.SetDataBinding(ds, "Listing")

        Catch ex As SqlException
        End Try
    End Sub

I can not use this with Datagridview. I need xml file to be read Starting at Listing Tag.
Here is the file
When I create the DataSet I get one column of tags leading up to Listing Tag. Please Help

You can't freeze column in basic datagrid

Why can't you use datagridview ? Here is code for binding data to Listing tag

    Dim ds As New DataSet
    ds.ReadXml("", XmlReadMode.InferSchema)
    With DataGridView1  ' the datagridview
      .DataSource = ds
      .DataMember = "Listing"
      .AutoSizeColumnsMode = DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.AllCells
    End With

Then you can freeze the column that you want with no problem
