Tutorial :Dynamically Added CheckBox Column is Disabled in GridView


I'm dynamically adding a Boolean column to a DataSet. The DataSet's table is the DataSource for a GridView, which AutoGenerates the columns.

Issue: The checkboxes for this dynamically generated column are all disabled. How can I enable them?

ds.Tables["Transactions"].Columns.Add("Retry", typeof(System.Boolean));  ds.Tables["Transactions"].Columns["Retry"].ReadOnly = false;  

In other words, how can I control how GridView generates the CheckBoxes for a Boolean field? (And why does setting ReadOnly to False have no effect?)



You should probably add CellContentClick event handler and negate the value that the cell already has. Like:

private void dgvRaceDetails_CellContentClick(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)  {              if (e.ColumnIndex == 5)              {                  dgvRaceDetails.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[5].Value =                      !(Boolean)dgvRaceDetails.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[5].Value;              }                if (e.ColumnIndex == 6)              {                  dgvRaceDetails.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[6].Value =                      !(Boolean)dgvRaceDetails.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[6].Value;              }  }  


I believe they will be automatically disabled until they have a value.

DataRow row = ds.Tables["Transactions"].NewRow();  row("Retry") = true;  ds.Tables["Transactions"].Rows.Add(row)  


Set the value of Boolean to true. Its default value is false. I hope this helps.
