In vs 2010, I have a simple form to utilize data reader to display some data via a gridview control. I am getting the following:
Error	1	'System.Windows.Forms.DataGridView' does not contain a definition for 'DataBind' and no extension method 'DataBind' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Windows.Forms.DataGridView' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)	

Open in new window

The code in this form is:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Data.SqlClient;

namespace ado01_Connection
{
    public partial class Form08 : Form
    {
        String cs = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["csDatabase"].ConnectionString;
        SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection();

        public Form08()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void Form08_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            using (con)
            {
                con.Open();
                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("SELECT *  FROM Customers", con);
                SqlDataReader rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader();
                BindingSource source = new BindingSource();
                //source.DataSource = rdr;
                dataGridView1.DataSource = rdr;
                dataGridView1.DataBind();
                // https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzwBuqILfds <-- using this link
            }
        }
    }
}

Open in new window

The error occurs at line 34:     dataGridView1.DataBind();  

This sample video is done for asp.net but I am trying to do this for c# in vs 2010 win application.

Thank you.

Remove this line of code.

dataGridView1.DataBind();

Open in new window


It is only used in Web applications.
