Hi Experts!

My form has a tabcontrol with 02 pages

In the 1st page a line of data could be saved.

The 2nd. page has a dataGridView that must present the most recent line inserted when fired.

But now the dataGridView isn't refreshed accordingly to:

        private void tabPage2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            dataGridView.Refresh(); 
        }

Open in new window


So, I have to close the form and reenter in it to see the line recently inserted...

What (else) must be done?

Thanks in advance!

Refresh forces the grid to redraw itself, it does not refresh the data.

If the grid is databound, set its DataSource to Nothing. If it was filled with code, calls DataGridView1.Rows.Clear to empty it.

Then rerun the code that you used to fill the grid.

It will refresh without having to close and open the form.
