Save and then re-load a dataset to/from XML file
Posted on 2013-06-05
I have a Series of Properties created for a DataGridView generator I wrote some time back. It works well and now I was thinking of adding the ability to write the structure to an XML file and then read it back in.
I have the following sets of Public Properties I want to store:
The strVarProperties and strVarSettings relate to DataGridView fields so there can be several of these as Public Property arrays.
I don't want to store the actual DataGridView data, but the basic structure of the DataGridView and its properties including all field properties. This ability would allow me to setup a Default view and allow the user to change fields being displayed as needed with options.
With XML there is ReadXML and WriteXML.
Can I create a dataset including the above Public Properties and write that using the statements above which relate to the dataset?
OR do I need to write some additional code to create the dataset structure I want to write and then read back in?
Thank you for your assistance.
