Hey there. I've been struggling with developing for a few days now. Caught in a loop, because I'm always tired due to a busy schedule, and not concentrated, so thinking has been difficult. But I have a datagrid I want to programmatically populate. The program signs into a server, and gets a list of game servers. I want to populate my datagrid with information such as ping, and maps, etc, and what gets me is how the code is set up. I wouldn't know how to add all of the information needed for a row. My wording is also pretty terrible, due to lack of rest. Haha. Anywho here's some examples.

This is some of the Launcher.cs Class
        private void ServerListenerName(int id, string name)
    Console.WriteLine("server {0} name = {1}", id, name);
                Application.Current.Dispatcher.Invoke((Action)(() =>
                  w.addName(id, name);


private void ServerListenerAttr(int id, string name, string value)
    Console.WriteLine("server {0} attr {1} = {2}", id, name, value);

private void ServerListenerCap(int id, int cap0, int cap1)
    Console.WriteLine("server {0} cap0 = {1} cap1 = {2}", id, cap0, cap1);

private void ServerListenerState(int id, int state)
    Console.WriteLine("server {0} state = {1}", id, state);


private void ServerListenerPlayers(int id, int players)
    Console.WriteLine("server {0} players = {1}", id, players);

private void ServerListenerAddr(int id, string ip, int port)
    Console.WriteLine("server {0} ip = {1} port = {2}", id, ip, port);

As you can see, it's broken up into different events. I was hoping to get specific parts of each event into a single string to pass to the window, window being the "w". If you look, all of them have the (int id), so would there be a way to add information to my datagrid's items based on their id? Here's the code for w.addName(id, name);
public void addName(int sID, string sName)
            servl.Items.Add(new zList { zID = sID, zName = sName, zMap = "map", zPlayers = "10/64", zGamemode = "tdm", zPing = 74});

        public class zList
            public int zID { get; set; }
            public string zName { get; set; }
            public string zMap { get; set; }
            public string zPlayers { get; set; }
            public string zGamemode { get; set; }
            public int zPing { get; set; }

Don't mind the temporary strings/integers under the "servl.Items.Add(new zList { zID = sID, zName = sName, zMap = "map", zPlayers = "10/64", zGamemode = "tdm", zPing = 74});", as they are just for general list population.

XAML for the Datagrid
<DataGrid x:Name="servl" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="175,10,0,0" VerticalAlignment="Top" Height="676" Width="1054" FontFamily="Geared Slab">
                <DataGridTextColumn Binding="{Binding Path=zID}" ClipboardContentBinding="{x:Null}" Foreground="#FFDADADA" FontWeight="Bold" FontFamily="Geared Slab" Header="ID" SortDirection="Ascending" CanUserResize="False" Width="40"/>
                <DataGridTextColumn Binding="{Binding Path=zName}" ClipboardContentBinding="{x:Null}" Foreground="#FFDADADA" Header="Name" CanUserResize="False" FontFamily="Geared Slab" Width="250"/>
                <DataGridTextColumn Binding="{Binding Path=zMap}" ClipboardContentBinding="{x:Null}" Foreground="#FFDADADA" Header="Map" CanUserResize="False" Width="130"/>
                <DataGridTextColumn Binding="{x:Null}" ClipboardContentBinding="{x:Null}" Foreground="#FFDADADA" Header="Players" CanUserResize="False" Width="85"/>
                <DataGridTextColumn Binding="{x:Null}" ClipboardContentBinding="{x:Null}" Foreground="#FFDADADA" Header="Gamemode" CanUserResize="False" Width="135"/>
                <DataGridTextColumn Binding="{x:Null}" ClipboardContentBinding="{x:Null}" Foreground="#FFDADADA" Header="Ping"/>

So for a TL;DR [Too long, didn't read], I want to add servers to my datagrid, but considering the set up of Launcher.cs's code, I wouldn't know how. Thanks for your time.

You need to bind the ItemsSource to the zList

How would I tell the zList what the "zMap" is, for example?
