DataGrid with only certain columns from a dataset

GhostOfHendrixGhostOfHendrix Posts: 5Member
Hey everyone.
I would like to know how to display data from a dataset in a datagrid with only certain columns included from the dataset. I know how to display all of the dataset into a datagrid, but I would like to leave out some fields such as recordID and such that I dont want to display to the user. Can someone help?

This is how I fill the datagrid:

dataAdapter = new OleDbDataAdapter(CommandString, conn);
ds = new DataSet();
dataAdapter.Fill(ds, "prog");
dataTable = ds.Tables["prog"];
totalRec = dataTable.Rows.Count;

//Can I Bind Only certain columns of the dataset?
dgEvents.SetDataBinding(ds, "prog");

    hi, what you can do is to make a datatable will the cols that you want to show in the datagrid then fill those cols of the datatable from your dataset...
    after which u can bind that table to the datagrid...
    will be very easy this way....

    Do you have some sample code that shows how to define the columns and how to fill them with the data? Thanks for the help!

    _strSql = ""
    Dim i As Short = 1
    Dim dtFac As DataTable = New System.Data.DataTable("Fac")

    objCommand = DbCore.GetCommand(_strSql)
    objDbReader = DbCore.ExecuteReader(objCommand)

    If DbCore.DBErrorNo <> 0 Then

    If Not objDbReader.Read Then

    Exit Sub
    Dim dRow As DataRow
    dRow = dtFac.NewRow
    dRow(0) = objDbReader.Item("Some Col that u need")
    dRow(1) = objDbReader.Item("Col u need")
    dRow(2) = objDbReader.Item("Col u need")
    dRow(3) = objDbReader.Item("Col u need")
    Loop While (objDbReader.Read())
    End If
    myDatagrid.DataSource = dtFac
    End If

    as u can see above i have use a data reader,
    similarly, you can get the data in a dataset and then copy it over as in case of data reader like below :
    Dim dRow As DataRow
    dRow = dtFac.NewRow
    dRow(0) = you dataset's col
    dRow(1) = you dataset's col
    dRow(2) = you dataset's col
    dRow(3) = you dataset's col
