hi - I have a datagridview that is linked to a datatable, where every column in the DGV is bound to a field in the datatable. I've added a column that I want to fill in programmatically, but the data isn't being displayed. I suspect it's because the rest of the DGV is data bound. how would I go about filling in the column with programmatically generated data? the couple lines below show where the data is coming from:

won't let me paste.

you have to modify the underlying data structure before you bind the dgv to the datatable.

For example

DataTable dt = new DataTable("Customers");

workTable.Columns.Add("FirstName", typeof(String));
workTable.Columns.Add("LastName", typeof(String));
workTable.Columns.Add("FullName", typeof(String));

workTable.Columns["FullName"].Expression = "FirstName + LastName";
