How to Bind Datatable to DataGridView Control in Windows Form Application

Let's Starts:

1) Open Visual Studio and Go To => File => New => Select Windows Form Application.

2) There will be a blank windows form you can use drag and drop controls from the left side panel named "Toolbox", select DataGridview and drop it to your form.

3) Create a Database and add a table named 'details', data of that (details) table will be bind to this control, the schema of the table is as shown

4) write code for binding the data to DataGridView control as shown 

            Form1.cs Code:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;

using System.Configuration;

namespace DGV
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            DataTable dt = LoadMyData();

            dataGridView1.DataSource = dt;


        internal DataTable LoadMyData()
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();

            string con = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["con"].ConnectionString;

            SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(con);

            string command = string.Format("Select * from Details");

            SqlCommand sqlCommand = new SqlCommand(command, connection);
            SqlDataAdapter sqlDataAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter(sqlCommand);


            return dt;

In the above code, System.configuration is used for the connection string that is defined in App.config as written below:

<add name="con" connectionString="Data Source=.;Initial Catalog=DotNetKida;Integrated Security=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

we just create a function LoadMyData() to fetch the data from details table and bind it to DataGridView control by using DataSource property.
