The previous link is for FoxPro. Useless in for a .NET application.

If you are working with a Windows Application, do not post in the ASP.NET topic. ASP.NET is for Web development, not Windows Applications.

You can use a DataGridView or a ListView. A ListBox can also be used in some situations. I would sometimes create a UserControl that I repeat in a FlowLayoutPanel. It depends on the type of data, whether the columns needs to be of fixed widths with line separators, whether you need to react to individual columns or only to the row itself.

Sorry, it was the night for me.

You usually do not use DataMember with a DataGridView. It is useful only when the grid is working with a DataSet that has multiple tables.

And by the way, you have made a common mistake. You do not use a DataSet when you have a single table. The role of a DataSet is to maintain relations between many tables. If you have only one, it is useless and simply adds extra overhead.

Simply use a DataTable object and use Fill on that object instead of the DataSet:

DataTable dt = New DataTable();
...
pagingAdapter.Fill(dt);
DataView dvEmp = dt.DefaultView;

Also, do you really need a DataView? If you do not sort or filter later on, the DataView is also useless. You can assign the DataTable directly to the DataSource, so your GetData method could simply return the DataTable.

One of the main advantages of ADO.NET is that it is very versatile and you can use it in many different ways depending on your needs. One of the main disadvantage of ADO.NET is that because of that versatility, the web is full of useless code that everybody copies without really understanding what they are doing, and everybody ends up transmitting that code to everybody else.
