Hi all,
I have a UltraWinGrid in my windows application.
my application user can modify the WinGrid (for example select columns that he want to see in grid and also change sequence of them) and then when he press 'Print' button the current WinGrid with current columns and sequence and data should send to a class as a parameter in DataTable type.

but the problem is that the sequence and number of columns in the DataSource does not match to current WinGrid that is shown on screen.
