RowSpan and ColSpan can be used in HTML design if merging of columns or rows is needed within a table.

RowSpan can easily implemented in ASP.NET GridView or DataGrid web controls. In this Wiki article you will find a sample of how RowSpan can be used with GridView's RowCreated event.

Here is sample code :

' Control the row type, continue if it is a DataRow 

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then

    ' If it is the first row add a new cell

    If e.Row.RowIndex = 0 Then

        Dim tc As New TableCell()

        tc.RowSpan = 1



        ' In the following rows alter the RowSpan property of the recently added cell by one

        Dim tc As TableCell = GridView1.Rows(0).Cells(GridView1.Rows(0).Cells.Count - 1)

        tc.RowSpan = tc.RowSpan + 1

    End If

End If

The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.

The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.
