    Question How to add an "extra" columns to GridView and change the column name above?

    Dear members and administrators,

    Hello and a greeting of peace.

    I've been doing a simple database web application, and I am using a GridView in showing my data coming from SQL Server 2005. My table (named Student) in SQL Server has four fields (ID,FN,MN,LN).

    In my search button, for example, I search for a Last Name, then the data coming from SQL Server will be displayed (if there is a match or if there are matches) with the help of GridView, but is there a way of adding extra columns (two columns for example) on the GridView even I only have four fields?

    I am planning to have an EDIT and DELETE link that will jump to edit.aspx (when EDIT link is clicked); and I still have no idea on whether I will have a delete.aspx or should I just have to add another one column that has a YES and NO button, or maybe a prompt YES/NO using JavaScript?

    And also, I noticed that the GridView gets the column name from my SQL Server. Is there a way to change it? (for example, instead of displaying LN I would like to change it to Last Name, etc.)

    Thank you for reading this forum and may God bless us all.
    Have a nice day.


    Respectfully Yours,

    Hi,
    For changing header name of the gridview,You can set
    Code:
    autogeneratecolumns="false"
    in gridview control and add
    Code:
    headertext="YourChoice of Name"
    property in bound fields. Just like below:
    Code:
    <asp:gridview id="GridView1" 
      onrowdatabound="GridView1_RowDataBound"
      autogeneratecolumns="False"
       runat="server">
        <Columns>
             <asp:BoundField DataField="LName" HeaderText="Last Name" 
                SortExpression="LName" />
        </Columns>
    </asp:gridview>
    For adding extra column in gridview,add below code inside <column>:
    Code:
    <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Your Choice">
                        <ItemTemplate>
                           //control You want to add
                        </ItemTemplate>
                        <EditItemTemplate>
                           //control you want to add
                        </EditItemTemplate>
                    </asp:TemplateField>
    Thanks.
