This paper addresses some of the questions about customizing grid display that are commonly asked in newsgroups, on Web sites, and in other developer forums. The techniques described here are sometimes quite simple and at other times somewhat involved. In each case, however, they address a question of how to go beyond the basic functionality of the DataGrid control.


  • Windows Forms versus Web Forms DataGrid Controls
  • Controlling Column Width, Height, and Alignment
  • Customizing Column Layout in Display and Edit Mode
  • Formatting Dates, Currency, and Other Data
  • Showing and Hiding Columns Dynamically
  • Adding Columns Dynamically
  • Adding New Records to a Data Source Using the DataGrid Control
  • Displaying a Drop-Down List in Edit Mode
  • Selecting Multiple Items Using a Check Box (Hotmail Model)
  • Editing Multiple Rows At Once
  • Selecting Rows by Clicking Anywhere
