Load data into datatable and set as itemsource

Hi guys,

I am trying to load data into a datatable and set the datatable as the itemsource of a datagrid.

My code below seems until it comes to setting the itemsource of the datagrid to t, the error message is....

Cannot implicitly convert type 'system.data.datatable' tp type 'system.collections.IEnumerable' and explicit conversion exists.

 private void LoadDataset()
        {

            using (SqlConnection c = new SqlConnection("XXX"))
            {
                c.Open();

                using (SqlDataAdapter a = new SqlDataAdapter("select * from SQ_SysproHis_Step3", c))
                {
                    DataTable t = new DataTable();
                    a.Fill(t);

                    DataTableV2.ItemsSource = t;
                }
            }
            
        }

Open in new window


Many Thanks,
Dean

if DataTableV2 is your datagrid , you should use:

DataTableV2.datasource = t
0
 
esolveCommented:
//ASP.NET
DataGrid1.DataSource = ds; //where ds = dataset which contains your table
DataGrid1.DataMember = ds.Tables[0].TableName;
DataGrid1.DataBind();

//Silverlight
datagrid.ItemsSource = dataset.Tables[0].DefaultView;

So in your case if you're using silverlight I suppose you can bind to the
t.DefaultView
