MS strikes again. In my tiny little mind this should be a no brainer but I just don't see how to make this work.
I have an unbound DataGridView control where I have defined the columns at design time.
Currently to add a new row I use a like this:
gridname.row.add(value1, value2, value3, value4)
This offends my sense of good programming because if I add a column to the grid or change the order of the columns then I need to alter the line above. What I want to do is to create a new datagridviewrow complete with columns and then populate the values like so:
dr.cells("FirstName").value = value1 dr.cells("LastName").value = value2 dr.cells("Address").value = value3
Just like I do when editing an existing row in the grid.
I thought I could do the following:
Dim dr as New DataGridViewRow dr = MyGrid.RowTemplate
I thought this would give me a new row complete with cells but no values. Appartently this is the wrong property. Is there a property that will give me a blank row, but with the cell names/types that have already been defined in the grid defined in the row?
Yes, I know I can take an existing row and just clear the values but when this program load, there are not always existing rows. Please don't tell me I am going to have to add the columns myself. dr.cell.add(cell definition)
