  What VB.net code do I use to add a row of data to a DataGridView where the last column is a checkbox column.
 I have tried the following to approaches which both don't work

  DataGridView1.Rows.Add(New String() {oColumnName, "", ""})

You can also do this:

Dim dtrn As Datarow
dtrn = YourDataGridView.NewRow
dtrn("Col1") = "Some Value"
dtrn("Col2") = True


This method is useful if you need to apply logic to the value of a Column.

Glad I could help. One more comment though: databound controls are UI representation of data. In most cases they are intended to view data and to edit data inside them (using keyboard/mouse). If you want change smth in code without user action it's better to change data rather then control properties. I.e. if your datagridview bounded to datatable (either via bindingsource or directly) - it's better to add row to datatable and gridview will display changes.
