I will be required to start working with ASP:DataGrid controls.(Not GridView). I want to create a very basic DataGrid with one or two columns of Data using data bound columns. Below I have create a basic ASP:DataGrid. I bind the data source to my Grid using
some simple data set data I created in C#. It works great however I am gettng the same column duplicated twice? How can  change
the code so that the data source is one column which maps to by bound data column below in my asp markup. DataField ="Name"?


<asp:Content runat="server" ID="FeaturedContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="FeaturedContent">
<ASP:DataGrid id="MyDataGrid" runat="server" Width="700px" EnableViewState="False">
<Columns>
<asp:BoundColumn DataField="Name" ReadOnly="True" HeaderText="Name">
   <HeaderStyle Font-Bold="True" HorizontalAlign="Center"></ItemStyle>
</asp:BoundColumn>
</Columns>
</asp:DataGrid>
</asp:Content>

---------------------------
namespace WebApplication1
{
  public partial class _Default : Page
  {
     DataSet ds = new DataSet();
     DataTable dt = new DataTable();
     dt.Columns.Add("Name", Type.GetType("System.String"));
     dt.Rows.Add(new object[] {"James Bawn"});
     ds.Tables.Add(dt);
     MyDataGrid.DataSource=dt;
     MyDataGrid.DataBind();

Try this

<asp:Content runat="server" ID="FeaturedContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="FeaturedContent">
 <asp :GridView ID="GridViewPawan" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false">
  <columns>
   <asp :BoundField HeaderText="Name" DataField="Name" />   
 </columns>
 </asp:GridView>
</asp:Content>

DataTable dt = new DataTable();
dt.Columns.Add("Name", typeof(string));
dt.Rows.Add("James Bawn");
GridViewPawan.DataSource=dt;
GridViewPawan.DataBind();

ok, Try AutoGenerateColumns="false"  is the issue

<%@ Page Title="Home Page" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Site.master" AutoEventWireup="true"
    CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="WebApplication1._Default" %>
<asp:Content ID="BodyContent" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent">
    <ASP:DataGrid id="MyDataGrid" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false" Width="700px">
     <Columns>
       <asp:BoundColumn DataField="Name" HeaderText="Namex">    
       </asp:BoundColumn>
     </Columns>
    </asp:DataGrid>
</asp:Content>

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            dt.Columns.Add("Name", typeof(string));
            dt.Rows.Add("James Bawn");
            MyDataGrid.DataSource = dt;
            MyDataGrid.DataBind();
        }

Open in new window

AutoGenerate columns is not in my markup. It looks like you posted in some other code Pawan, and not the code I posted.

You have to add it.

If you DONT add below property then by default .NET engine takes this property as true and it will generate the columns for you. that's why you are getting duplicate columns. - One is by AutoGenerateColumns and other one by you Bound Column.


Hope it helps !!
