DataGrid etc does not display when using VS.NET server controls

This thing is driving me nuts! I know you should be able to do it with code but I want to be able to drag a dataadapter onto a page, set up the dataset from that and bind it to a datagrid without writing a line of code. Everytime I do it whether I am using a remote SQL Server or a local MSDE for the datasouce all I get is a blank page. The source contains the form and the __VIEWSTATE and that is it.

If I add in the pageload codebehind datagrid1.databind() then I get the column headings and that is all.
Any ideas?

You always have to call DataBind, that's for sure.

If you are getting the column headings, but no data, then make sure your SQL statement is correct. If the SQL statement was invalid, then you wouldn't have even gotten that much. Your query is probably valid, but there are no rows that match your search criteria (in the "WHERE" clause).

Ahhh... it looks like the VS stuff doesn't fill the dataset. Why is that? It does EVERYTHING else for you.... or did I boo-boo?

Thanks for the hints.

Well first, don't expect VS to start writing your apps for you - it just makes it easier. But how about showing what code you have in your .aspx files and in your codebehind file?

I've same problem, the result I get is just a blank page.

I'm very new to ASP.Net and it is my first code. I'm using Visual
Code Behind:

Public Class WebForm1
**CENSORED!!** (default codes without change)
Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim connect As New
ID=saber;Initial Catalog=persiantools;Data Source=localhost;")
Dim SQLstr As String = "SELECT * FROM polltable "
Dim myDataAdapter As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(SQLstr, connect)
Dim myDataSet As New DataSet
myDataAdapter.Fill(myDataSet, "polltable")
DataGrid1 = New DataGrid
DataGrid1.DataSource = myDataSet.Tables("polltable")
End Sub
End Class

****THE RESULT I GET *****

Thanks SushilaSB,

But the problem was easier than what I thought!
People in a usenet answered me I've to put:

Page.Controls.Add(control as object)

at the end of CodeBehind.
And in this example:


Thanks Again :)
