How to populate a database in WinForms GridControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl
Tags: databinding

Populate a database

The GridControl doesn’t have support to bind the DataSource directly. So, you can use the PopulateValues method to populate the data source and also populate the header using the PopulateHeaders method in GridControl.


this.gridControl1.PopulateHeaders(GridRangeInfo.Cells(0, 1, gridControl1.RowCount, gridControl1.ColCount), CreateTable());
this.gridControl1.PopulateValues(GridRangeInfo.Cells(1, 1, gridControl1.RowCount, gridControl1.ColCount), CreateTable());


Me.gridControl1.PopulateHeaders(GridRangeInfo.Cells(0, 1, gridControl1.RowCount, gridControl1.ColCount), CreateTable())
Me.gridControl1.PopulateValues(GridRangeInfo.Cells(1, 1, gridControl1.RowCount, gridControl1.ColCount), CreateTable())

Edited values are not committed with data source here because you can populate only the data values in GridControl.
