How do I create a DataSet with the data entered in the Grid?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridDataBoundGrid(Classic)


You can create a new dataset with a table. Then loop through the grid to get the values and can initialize the DataTable's columns and rows. The attached sample has a Grid Control and a GridDataBoundGrid. The data’s entered in the GridControl are assigned to a DataTable and is displayed in the GridDataBoundGrid.


private DataSet GetDataSetFromGrid(GridControl grid, string tableName, string dataSetName)


DataTable dt = new DataTable(tableName);

for(int i = 0; i < grid.ColCount; ++i)


string colName = grid[0, i + 1].Text;

if(colName.Length == 0)

colName = GridRangeInfo.GetAlphaLabel(i + 1);

Type t = grid.ColStyles[i + 1].CellValueType;

if(t == null)

t = typeof(string);

DataColumn dc = new DataColumn(colName, t);



for(int i = 0; i < grid.RowCount; ++i)


DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();

for(int j = 0; j < grid.ColCount; ++j)


dr[j] = grid[i+1, j+1].CellValue;





DataSet ds = new DataSet(dataSetName);


return ds;



Private Function GetDataSetFromGrid(ByVal grid As GridControl, ByVal tableName As String, ByVal dataSetName As String) As DataSet

Dim dt As DataTable = New DataTable(tableName)

Dim i As Integer = 0

Do While i < grid.ColCount

Dim colName As String = grid(0, i + 1).Text

If colName.Length = 0 Then

colName = GridRangeInfo.GetAlphaLabel(i + 1)

End If

Dim t As Type = grid.ColStyles(i + 1).CellValueType

If t Is Nothing Then

t = GetType(String)

End If

Dim dc As DataColumn = New DataColumn(colName, t)


i += 1


i = 0

Do While i < grid.RowCount

Dim dr As DataRow = dt.NewRow()

Dim j As Integer = 0

Do While j < grid.ColCount

dr(j) = grid(i+1, j+1).CellValue

j += 1



i += 1



Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet(dataSetName)


Return ds

End Function
