Return Value

Type: System.Collections.ICollection

A System.Collections.ICollection that contains the fields used to build the control hierarchy.

When the AutoGenerateColumns property is set to true, a bound column field is automatically created for each field in the data source. Each bound column field is then displayed as a row in the GridView control in the order that the fields appear in the data source. The CreateColumns method is used to create the automatically generated column fields.
