Binding grid to some other Dataset

I am binding a DataBoundGrid to a Dataset with two tables.On some event I want to bind the grid to some other DataTable.Want to display some other data not the previous one. I wrote following code on that event which generated exception. this.gridDataBoundGrid1.DataMember = "Messages"; this.gridDataBoundGrid1.DataSource = messageTable; (messageTable is DataTable) The exception was Cannot create a child list for field Messages. How to handle this?

Try switching the order of the two statements. this.gridDataBoundGrid1.DataSource = MessageTable; this.gridDataBoundGrid1.DataMember = "Messages"; If that does not do it, then add this code first. this.gridDataBoundGrid1.DataSource = null; this.gridDataBoundGrid1.DataMember = "";

Hi Clay, Thanks for your quick responses. The problem is still there. Even I tried DataMember = Null; Umangi

If you are setting DataSource to a DataTable (messageTable), then the only reason to set DataMember = "Messages" is if "Messages" is a name of a DataRelation that you want to see in a hierarchical grid. Is this the case? If not, then DataMember should just be set to "".

This does not generate exception but only first column is displayed. And when I try to bind with original data I write following code. this.gridDataBoundGrid1.DataMember = "QueryThreads"; this.gridDataBoundGrid1.DataSource = dataSet; GridHierarchyLevel queryLevel = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.AddRelation("QueryThreadQuery"); Now the following exception is generated ''Cannot create a child list for field QueryThreads.'' Clay, Can u help me?
