Extra Column In Data Bound DataGridView

Extra Column In Data Bound DataGridView

Extra Column In Data Bound DataGridView

(OP)
In a previous posting (thread) I was creating a small datagridview (dgv) with one column from Active Directory. This time I am trying to use an existing data bound dgv and add a similar column to it. With the code below I am able to add the column, but no data is loaded into it. What am I missing?

CODE --> 2012

dgvCODView.DataSource = PWordRstTableAdapter.FillBySubmitted(Me.MedSARADataSet.PWordRst)
Dim extraColumn As New DataGridViewColumn
With extraColumn
     .Name = "UserName"
     .HeaderText = "User Name"
     .ReadOnly = True
End With
dgvCODView.Columns.Insert(0, extraColumn)

For Each row As DataGridViewRow In dgvCODView.Rows
     row.Cells("UserName") = GetUserName(domainDN, row.Cells("EmpID"))
Next 

RE: Extra Column In Data Bound DataGridView


Is there a reason you want to add the column to the DataGridView instead of the underlying DataTable?

No, there is not a known reason for not using the underlying data table (PWordRstTableAdapter). I am new to programming and would like a better understanding about data tables, adapters, etc. This application will be used by several hundred people to submit requests for password resets. With this in mind, I will be creating several DGVs to display various pieces of information. I was hoping to find an efficient way to create views, some from the table, and some with additional columns. Can I add the column to the existing adapter and it won't affect another user looking at the same adapter in a different view?

RE: Extra Column In Data Bound DataGridView


If you add the extra column to the DataTable, it will only be part of that table. If you add a column to the adapter - in the SQL code - the yes, everyone will see that column. That's why I say add the column to the DataTable.
