Good Day Experts!

I am interested in adding row number to my Vb.Net DataGrid.  I don't want to add a column in the data.  I would like to have it in the left-hand column where the row "Indicator" is.

Is this possible? Do you have a reference that can help me achieve this?

Thanks,

You can do this with the HeaderCell property of the DataGridView :
The following code does it on a button click but you could do this on page_load as well:

' Set row labels. 
Private Sub Button6_Click(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button6.Click

    Dim rowNumber As Integer = 1
    For Each row As DataGridViewRow In dataGridView.Rows
        If row.IsNewRow Then Continue For
        row.HeaderCell.Value = "Row " & rowNumber
        rowNumber = rowNumber + 1
    Next
    dataGridView.AutoResizeRowHeadersWidth( _
        DataGridViewRowHeadersWidthSizeMode.AutoSizeToAllHeaders)
End Sub

Open in new window

hi..

If you want to add row numbers to each row header cell, try this:

New,Courier,Monospace">New,Courier,Monospace">Public Sub AddDgvRowHeaderCell(ByVal DGV As DataGridView)
New,Courier,Monospace">New,Courier,Monospace">'adds numbers for each row header cell
Dim row As DataGridViewRow
Dim i As Integer = 0
For Each row In DGV.Rows
DGV.Rows(i).HeaderCell.Value = (1 + i).ToString
i += 1
Next
End Sub
