Yes you may. Through the usage of the TemplateColumn, yes. An example of this:

<asp:DataGrid runat="server" ID="dgSomeGrid">
                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataSource, "LastName") %>,
                <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataSource, "FirstName") %>

Thank you ans,

But if I use other control such as textbox in that column, then what should i do ?

In the case of textboxes make something like this in <Columns> section of Datagrid:

<asp:TextBox runat='server' id='txtFirstName'
Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataSource, "LastName") %>'>

Thank you for all of your ans

Orginally i think that text attribute is only allow one <%%> block, therefore I have this question.

Also, another possible solution is that using sql to combined two col of db table into single columns before filling into dataset!

Sure there is. Most SQL's has concatenation operators.

ORACLE:  CONCATENATE(Field1, CONCATENATE(' ', Field2)) as ResultField

MS SQL:  Field1 + ' ' + Field2 as ResultField

Concatenating two columns works only if you don't want to let user edit the data. In the case of editing such field you have to know that what part of inserted name is first name and what part is last name. There are persons having two first names (or first and mid name) and also there are persons having lastname as two words.

Well, in this case you have on simple solution too, but you have to mention it in bold text. You can ask user to separate first and last name using some character, by example comma.

Another alternative is to add a new column in the datatable (assuming you are using a datagrid) and set the Expression property.

This approach is supposed to have less overheard compared to generating the calculated column on the database backend.

datagrid columns bound to columns from different tables
Hi, I have a dataset with multiple tables. Is there a way to bind each of the datagrid's columns to a column from a different tables? Thanks in advance! BR The bottom line, yes you can, but it would take some custom methods getting called from a template column and some other fancy tricks. But, the datagrid is designed and works best when it's given it's one datasource. If you need data from different columns in different tables, I would make a custom datatable that reflects the columns you need and use that custom datatable has the datagrid's datasource.

Display Key columns and all columns for tables in one diagram
In Tools->Display Option-> Object View ->Table, you could choose to display only key columns, PK columns, top X columns or all columns for tables. But it applies to the whole diagram. I wonder whether we could do it on table level, say to display all columns for fact table but just PK columns for dimension tables so we could squeeze one subject area in one page.
