Can someone point me to a good "Simple" article on changing the look of your datagrid...for instance I don't want it to show First_Name right out of the database but I'd like to change that to something like "The Person's First Name" instead. Thx in Advance.
to make the datagrid's column names different than the datasource column names:
data grids have a property named AutoGenarate or AutoGenerateColumns (not sure about the exact name, find it out), set it to false.
i recommend u use Visual Studio.net, when u click on the data grid, all its properties are shown for u. after setting the property to false , u can use the "columns" property in the Propertis window in VS.net to customize ur columns...
u can find more details in all books about asp.net
