Bind DataRepeater at Runtime for Windows Forms

Bind DataRepeater at Runtime for Windows Forms

Bind DataRepeater at Runtime for Windows Forms

OK, this is driving me crazy.
I Can't seem to get a data repeater to show data when I bind at runtime to either a data table or a binding source.
The repeater shows the correct number of rows, just no data.
I checked the data is there in the table.
Seems like this should be easy, I must be missing something simple.
I have it working setting up all of the binding at design time, but can't seem to get it to work at runtime.
I have tried the following, with and without virtual mode.
Please help!


'This code is in the load of the form.
myDt = SelectRouting() 'SQL Proc
myBs = New BindingSource
myBs.DataSource = myDt
myBs.Sort = "prorefint, seqno"

txtVendName.DataBindings.Add("Text", myBs, "VendName")
DataRepeater2.DataSource = myBs

' OR
txtVendName.DataBindings.Add("Text", myDt, "VendName")
DataRepeater2.DataSource = myDt

What does SelectRouting do? I don't see any code for that. Maybe the problem could be located to that.

Forgot about this post, but thanks for responding.


is just a procedure to retrieve some data from the database.

I got it to work with setting the data binding of the textboxes at design time but wanted to do it at run time.
Not sure what I was doing wrong before but this seems to work now and not setting the data repeater binding source.


txtVendName.DataBindings.Add("Text", myBs, "VendName")
