I have tried to add a RadioButton control to a DataGridView and am unable to. Is there anyway at all this can be done? I know there is no DataGridViewRadioButton object but just wondered if there is a work-around?

It is clearly possible (see this article from Microsoft's ASP.NET site) to add a RadioButton column to a GridView.  Therefore, it is likely to be a problem in your implementation.  


What did you see that told you adding the RadioButton failed?  If you can, include the actual error message or a captured image that shows the error report.


What is the method you used to add the RadioButton?  Please include source code with the Imports that you used; please obscure anything you consider private such as passwords or directory paths, but please don't delete out any significant code.
This should help us diagnose your issue quickly.

Have you copied the class code into your project? And is it using any namespace?

What class code are you referring to? Do I need to include it as a reference in my project?
Also...I'm using VB.Net.

Any ideas on this and my screenshot posting? In case I didn't clarify, this is a Windows App and not a Web App. I'm using the DataGridView...not the GridView.

I was referring to DataGridViewRadioButtonCell  class which you can either convert to VB.NET online or put into a C# DLL project and reference in your project.
