Initializes a new instance of the GridView class.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

Public Sub New

Use this constructor to initialize a new instance of the GridView class. To dynamically add a GridView control to a page, create a new GridView object, set its properties, and then add it to the Control.Controls collection of a container control, such as PlaceHolder.

The following example demonstrates how to use the constructor to dynamically add a GridView control to a page.


<%@ Page language="VB" %>

<script runat="server">

  Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

    ' Create a new GridView object.
    Dim customersGridView As New GridView()

    ' Set the GridView object's properties.
    customersGridView.ID = "CustomersGridView"
    customersGridView.DataSourceID = "CustomersSource"
    customersGridView.AutoGenerateColumns = True

    ' Add the GridView object to the Controls collection
    ' of the PlaceHolder control.
    GridViewPlaceHolder.Controls.Add(customersGridView)

  End Sub

</script>
