Data binding refers to the process of automatically setting properties of one
or more form controls at run time from a structure that contains data. More
interesting point is binding of custom objects; one of these cases is binding of
two dimensional arrays to
The thing is little bit tricky , but in general it consists of implementing
some classes which represent view of the data and they in order need to
implement ending list of interfaces.
Here you can see interfaces and internal class structure of the library.
Using the code
It is very simple.
const int dim = 1000;
double[,] array = new double[dim,dim];
Random ran = new Random();
for(int r = 0; r < dim; r++)
for(int c = 0; c < dim; c++)
array[r,c] = (ran.Next(dim)); }
dataGrid1.DataSource = new ArrayDataView(array);
When you change data in array and want to see update in
DataGrid you need to call
Reset method of
ArrayDataView class. You can use all kind of base types
string and so on.
In addition there is a constructor with additional parameter which is array
of column names, length must be equal to columns of the array, if not exception
