I am binding my datagridview to datatable.
1 column in datatable has data like 0 or 1 .
Need to change 0 to null in the datatable.

Any way of doing this?

Hi,

Check this code


Dim dt As New DataTable()

dt.Columns.Add("IsChecked", GetType(Integer))
dt.Columns.Add("Name", GetType(String))

dt.Rows.Add(True, "Scott")
dt.Rows.Add(False, "Tom")
dt.Rows.Add(False, "John")
dt.Rows.Add(True, "Wilson")


For Each row As DataRow In dt.Rows
	If CInt(row("IsChecked")) = 0 Then
		row("IsChecked") = Nothing
	End If
Next

Any suggestions on how to highlight the rows having value null in the column 'checked'

Cheers

You can only do that while displaying in html by checking the null.

Use the CellFormatting event; e.g. -

Form1.vb -
Imports System.Runtime.CompilerServices
Imports System.ComponentModel

Public Class Form1
	Private Sub OnLoad(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
		DataGridView1.DataSource = (From i In Enumerable.Range(0, 20) Select New With {.ID = i, .FirstName = String.Format("FirstName{0}", i), .MiddleName = String.Format("MiddleName{0}", i), .LastName = String.Format("LastName{0}", i), .BirthDate = DateTime.Now.AddYears(-(i * 9)), .Age = DateTime.Now.Year - .BirthDate.Year, .IsWorking = i Mod 2}).ConvertToDataTable()
	End Sub

	Private Sub OnCellFormatting(sender As Object, e As DataGridViewCellFormattingEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellFormatting
		If TypeOf sender Is DataGridView Then
			Dim dgv = DirectCast(sender, DataGridView)
			Dim row = dgv.Rows(e.RowIndex)
			Dim column = dgv.Columns(e.ColumnIndex)

			If column.Equals(dgv.Columns("IsWorking")) Then
				If row.Cells(column.Index).Value IsNot Nothing AndAlso Not IsDBNull(row.Cells(column.Index).Value) Then
					If (CType(row.Cells(column.Index).Value, Integer) = 0) Then
						row.DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.Yellow
						Exit Sub
					End If
				End If
				row.DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.White
			End If
		End If
	End Sub
End Class

Module Extensions
	<Extension()> _
	Public Function ConvertToDataTable(Of T)(ByVal source As IEnumerable(Of T)) As DataTable
		Dim properties As PropertyDescriptorCollection = TypeDescriptor.GetProperties(GetType(T))
		Dim table As DataTable = New DataTable()

		For i As Integer = 0 To properties.Count - 1
			Dim [property] As PropertyDescriptor = properties(i)
			If [property].PropertyType.IsGenericType AndAlso [property].PropertyType.GetGenericTypeDefinition().Equals(GetType(Nullable)) Then
				table.Columns.Add([property].Name, [property].PropertyType.GetGenericArguments()(0))
			Else
				table.Columns.Add([property].Name, [property].PropertyType)
			End If
		Next

		Dim values(properties.Count - 1) As Object
		For Each item As T In source
			For i As Integer = 0 To properties.Count - 1
				values(i) = properties(i).GetValue(item)
			Next
			table.Rows.Add(values)
