   MessageBox.Show("LinkColor Before : "
   MessageBox.Show("HeaderFont Before : "

   myDataGridTableStyle1.LinkColorChanged +=
      new System.EventHandler(LinkColorChanged_Handler);
      += new System.EventHandler(HeaderFontChanged_Handler);
   myDataGridTableStyle1.MappingName = "Customers";

   // Set other properties.
   myDataGridTableStyle1.AlternatingBackColor = Color.LightGray;
   myDataGridTableStyle1.LinkColor = Color.Red;         
   myDataGridTableStyle1.HeaderFont = 
      new System.Drawing.Font("Verdana",

   // Add a GridColumnStyle and set its MappingName.             
   DataGridColumnStyle myBoolCol = new DataGridBoolColumn();
   myBoolCol.MappingName = "Current";
   myBoolCol.HeaderText = "IsCurrent Customer";
   myBoolCol.Width = 150;

   // Add a second column style.
   DataGridColumnStyle myTextCol = new DataGridTextBoxColumn();
   myTextCol.MappingName = "custName";
   myTextCol.HeaderText = "Customer Name";
   myTextCol.Width = 250;

   // Create new ColumnStyle objects
   DataGridColumnStyle cOrderDate = new DataGridTextBoxColumn();
   cOrderDate.MappingName = "OrderDate";
   cOrderDate.HeaderText = "Order Date";
   cOrderDate.Width = 100;

   // PropertyDescriptor to create a formatted column.
   PropertyDescriptorCollection myPropertyDescriptorCollection = this.BindingContext
      [myDataSet, "Customers.custToOrders"].GetItemProperties(); 

   DataGridColumnStyle csOrderAmount = 
      new DataGridTextBoxColumn(myPropertyDescriptorCollection["OrderAmount"], "c", true);
   csOrderAmount.MappingName = "OrderAmount";
   csOrderAmount.HeaderText = "Total";
   csOrderAmount.Width = 100;
