I created static columns called "Student Name" & "Village" using XAML as below:
<my:DataGrid.Columns >
      <my:DataGridTextColumn Header="Student Name" Width="200">
      <my:DataGridTextColumn Header="Village" Width="200">

Trying to add text from textbox using code under a button:
Dim row1() As String = {TextBox2.Text.ToString, TextBox3.Text.ToString}

Rows are added but with no text.
What could be the problem?

What does "manual" mean? What did you try, anyway?

Solution 1

Try this

Create a structure

Public Structure MyData
       Public Property id() As Integer
               Return m_id
           End Get
           Set(value As Integer)
               m_id = value
           End Set
       End Property
       Private m_id As Integer
       Public Property title() As String
               Return m_title
           End Get
           Set(value As String)
               m_title = value
           End Set
       End Property
       Private m_title As String
   End Structure

then in your button click event use the following

      Dim col1 As New DataGridTextColumn()
        Dim col2 As New DataGridTextColumn()
        col1.Binding = New Binding("id")
        col2.Binding = New Binding("title")
        col1.Header = "ID"
        col2.Header = "title"

        DataGrid1.Items.Add(New MyData() With { _
          .id = 1, _
          .title = "Test"

its a rough bit of code but should help you move forward

Hi braop, I have some ideas.

First: You can use a DataTable created manually as @petermahon explained.

Second: If you want to add custom text directly in your control you cannot use DataGridTextColumn because this Property expects some DataBinding. You can use a DataGridTemplateColumn with a TextBlock inside it and then you can add text from your XAML or C#.

Let me know.

Best regards.
