WPF Binding to DataGrid  (List is Complete; No data in DataGrid)

I am having trouble with what I believe is the binding to a datagrid.  When I step-through the code, I can see that as the while executes, each row is calculated correctly; that the data is there, but it just doesn't show-up in the datagrid.  I am getting a datagrid with a single empty column (when there should be three columns in this snippet example, with data filling a number of rows).

Does what I have shown provide enough information for someone to right my wrong?
Is there an issue with using the ItemsSource property of DataGrid?  As is seen below, AutoGenerateColumns is set to False.

* * * BEGIN C# SNIPPET * * *

private void RunApp()
{
     List<Result> RowResults = new List<Result>();
     int a = 0;
     int b = 0;
     int c = 0;
     . . .
     while (true)
     {
        . . .
        RowResults.Add(new Result() { A = a, B = b, C = c });
     }
dataGrid1.ItemsSource = RowResults;

* * * END C# SNIPPET * * *

Could there be something incorrect with my xaml; a property or reference perhaps?
Here is the DataGrid object:

<DataGrid Name="dataGrid1" AutoGenerateColumns="False"  Width="400" Height="300" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="400,80,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top" >

Thank you in advance!

Update:  I found a work-around to the binding issue, but it is not the ultimate solution I am looking for.  I looked at my own question and changed the AutoGenerateColumns to True for kicks.  This resulted in proper data and rows in my DataGrid (Yes, .NET 4.0, not .NET 4.5's DataGridView).  However, what I ultimately need is to title my headers appropriately and format the data in the rows.  For that, I believe I'll need manual control of the columns for which a question on that topic is outside of the scope of this one; it's a WPF question.
