DataGrid Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid class.

[Visual Basic]
Public Sub New()
public DataGrid();
public: DataGrid();
public function DataGrid();


To populate a newly created System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid control, set the DataSource property to a valid source, such as a DataView, DataSet, or DataViewManager.


[Visual Basic] The following example creates a new System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid and uses the SetDataBinding method to set the DataSource and DataMember properties.

[Visual Basic] 
' This object variable must go in the Declarations section:
Private DataGrid1 As DataGrid
Private Sub CreateDataGrid()
   ' Initialize a new DataGrid control.
   me.Datagrid1 = New DataGrid
   Dim myDataSet As DataSet = New DataSet("myDataSet")
   Dim myDataTable As DataTable = New DataTable("Customers")
   ' Insert code to populate the DataTable with rows.
   ' Set the DataSource and DataMember of the DataGrid control.
   DataGrid1.SetDataBinding(myDataSet, "Customers")
End Sub
