GridDataBoundGrid and Row Headers

I'm trying to create a databound grid which uses a DataTable as its DataSource (ie. grid.DataSource = myDataTable;). It's a readonly grid BTW, no edits allowed. I'd like to somehow make the grid's row header text be the values of my DataTable's column 0 values. The default behavior seems to be that the grid uses column 0 for a row header and column 1 for the first DataTable column. I've managed to do what I want by hiding the grid's column 1 and in the PrepareViewStyleInfo handler I copy the contents of column 1 to column 0 (the row header) for each row. This seems like a huge hack. Is there a more elegant way of forcing the DataBoundGrid to use my DataTable's first column as the row header values? Any insights appreciated. -Peter

Here is something to try. Hide the default row header (col 0). Then set: this.grid.Model.Cols.FrozenCount = 1; This should prevent your column 1 from scrolling and it should just display your column 1 values as a fixed column. If you want the cell to appear like a header cell, then set: this.grid.Binder.InternalColumns[0].StyleInfo.CellType = "Header";
