How do I get an indented datagrid on a form?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

I'm very new to Visual Studio/C# (though I've been a developer for decades), and I have a question on achieving indented data in a datagrid in a Windows Forms-based Visual Studio 2008 application. If this is the wrong forum, if someone could provide a link to the correct one, I'd be grateful. (The C# folks sent me here.)

In VS2008, I have a windows form application. Part of that app is a form with a datagrid on it. The data is sorted correctly and displays in the proper sort order, i.e.

Field1 ... Field2 ... Field3 ... Field4 ... etc

Field1 ... Field2 ... Field3 ... Field4 ... etc

Field1 ... Field2 ... Field3 ... Field4 ... etc

Field1 ... Field2 ... Field3 ... Field4 ... etc


What I need is like this:



        Field3 ... Field4 ... Field5 ... etc

        Field3 ... Field4 ... Field5 ... etc

        Field3 ... Field4 ... Field5 ... etc

        Field3 ... Field4 ... Field5 ... etc


Where Field1 and Field2 are data-based "headers".

I have no idea how to make this happen. If someone could point me in the right direction, that would be MOST appreciated!


Here's a detailed example:

DataGrid in a User Control. How to make it resizable in a form.


I embed the DataGridView control in a User Control.  The datagridview covers the entire user control.

When I used the user control in a form, I want to be able to size it the way I want to.  When I expand and shrink the user control, I want the embedded DataGridView to grow and shrink accordingly with the user control.  How would I go about doing that?

Without changing any of the default property values, when I place the user control on a form, the size stays fixed when used in a form.  That seems to happen only when you have a DataGridView in a user control.  

Thanks in advance.

How to format and update GridView and DataGrid rows using JQuery

The behavior described in this question is as expected. When you set text of a cell in grid, it directly affects HTML that is going to be rendered. When you set text value of a cell, it means that you are setting innerText of the cell. The column that GridView creates for command fields (Edit, Delete and Select) are a (anchor) or button elements. So you can see what will happen if you set text value in that cell. It will wipe out those link or button controls and replace them with simple text string.

Use Jquery with repeater, gridview, datagrid

Before we talk about jquery inside any itemtemplate (repeater, gridview, datagrid), we need to understand the basic use of jquery functions

ListBox tricky to set in a DataGrid/GridView

Listboxes are very tricky to set selected items in grid - there is no real nice way to do it. It would have been great if Microsoft included a property that accepts an array or comma separated values - or anything! But they only allow each item in the list to be selected individually. The way to do this in a grid is a bit messy, but it is fairly simple to implement. When a row is created (as per the event), select the items of the listbox as per the datagrid source data:

How to highlight datagrid or GridView row on mouse over?

This article will show how you can Ajax with GridView to display popup messages when mouse moves over certain column. In the demo project I have added first column as an image column with a help icon in it. This kind of implements a feature that if you want more information about the row you can move mouse over this icon, a asynchronous request is sent to server for data about that row and when call returns the returned message is show as a popup message.

Multiple Column Dropdownlist for the ASP.NET DataGrid

Based on my previous control "Multiple Column DropDownList for ASP.NET", I received many emails asking for the same control to be used in the DataGrid for web applications. Here we go.. This control can be used as the regular MS DropDownList in the DataGrid and also as a regular dropdownlist. It has all the properties, like DataTextField, DataValueField, DataSource, SelectedIndex etc. The download file contains the samples both in VB.NET and C#. In this sample, I have used the Northwind database of SQL Server.

JQuery Validate plugin to validate a ASP.NET Form

The first time I used the JQuery Validate plugin, it did not work at all, see JQuery Validate odd behaviour with the ASP.NET Script Manager for reason, but perseverance and stubbornness prevailed and I finally created my first JQuery validated ASP.NET Forms contact form.

Using the WPF Toolkit DataGrid

WPF comes with a large number of built in controls, but from the beginning it has lacked something that many application developers find extremely important - a DataGrid. You can use the ListView to create something approximating a DataGrid

How to use getElementById to get the elements in a form

There are many ways of accessing form elements, of which the easiest is by using the cross-browser W3C DOM document.getElementById method. Before we learn more about this method, it would be useful to know something about the Document Object Model (DOM), the concept of HTML nodes or elements, and the concept of containers.

Each time you load an HTML page, the web browser generates an internal representation of the page in the form of an inverted tree structure. Let us look at a simple form. We will use this form later to demonstrate the use of the getElementById method.

A datagrid control that can be personalized... anyone??


Hello all,

I need a datagrid control that has following features, besides other regular stuff like paging, sorting, filtering, etc:

The user should be able to -

1. Select columns to view

2. Select column Sequence

3. Select default sort column

4. Store the setting (as a view) and use it on next visit.

5. llow multiple such views to be stored for a user for future use.

All these settings should be saved and when the user comes back he gets the same settings.

Really appreciate your time and would love to get any ideas.

form feild hints are not displaying for textboxses inside create user wizard?



I'm using following JS code to display input hint box besides the textbox whenever that asp.net textbox receives focus. 

I'm doing this for a registration form and all of the textboxes are inside the asp.net create user wizard control.

  var oldonload = window.onload;
  if (typeof window.onload != 'function') {
    window.onload = func;
  } else {
    window.onload = function() {

function prepareInputsForHints() {
	var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("TextBox");
	for (var i=0; i<inputs.length; i++){
		// test to see if the hint span exists first
		if (inputs[i].parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0]) {
			// the span exists!  on focus, show the hint
			inputs[i].onfocus = function () {
				this.parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].style.display = "inline";
			// when the cursor moves away from the field, hide the hint
			inputs[i].onblur = function () {
				this.parentNode.getElementsByTagName("span")[0].style.display = "none";

Validate form input - Japanese


 I've searched for several hours and haven't come up with a reference - or even many discussions - of how to go about validating Japanese names, addresses, etc. When I lived in Japan websites, atm's etc. required such info to be entered with the roman alphabet but I've seen some websites that are allowing Kanji/Hiragana/Katakana. I haven't tested many of them for validation but one that I did test (after looking at the page source and discovering no client-side validation) allowed me to put this in the name field: J*=123*go^ Neat!

Any pointers/references? Thanks
