Dynamically create DataTable and bind to GridView in ASP.Net C#,VB

dynamically create DataTable and bind to GridView in ASP.Net C#,VBIntroduction: In this article I am going to share how we can create dynamic datatable, add columns, rows and data in it and bind to gridview.

Description: As we know we can use datatable to bind data from database. But there may be some reasons to dynamically build and bind data to gridview. In that case we can create datatable and add required columns specifying their data type and then we can create rows and add data in those columns.

Implementation: Let’s create a demo page for demonstration purpose.

HTML Source
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
          <asp:GridView ID="grdEmployeeDetails" runat="server" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333" GridLines="None">
                <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" />
                <EditRowStyle BackColor="#2461BF" />
                <FooterStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                <HeaderStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White"></HeaderStyle>
                <PagerStyle BackColor="#2461BF" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
                <RowStyle BackColor="#EFF3FB" />
                <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#D1DDF1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
                <SortedAscendingCellStyle BackColor="#F5F7FB" />
                <SortedAscendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#6D95E1" />
                <SortedDescendingCellStyle BackColor="#E9EBEF" />
                <SortedDescendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#4870BE" />

Asp.Net C# Code to dynamically create datatable and bind to gridview.

using System;
using System.Data;

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!IsPostBack)
       protected void BindGridview()
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        //Add Columns to datatable
        dt.Columns.Add("EmployeeId", typeof(Int32));
        dt.Columns.Add("Employee Name", typeof(string));
        dt.Columns.Add("Employee Code", typeof(string));
        //Adding rows and data
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "Ajay", "EMP0001");
        dt.Rows.Add(2, "Irfan", " EMP0002");
        dt.Rows.Add(3, "Hrithik", " EMP0003");
        dt.Rows.Add(4, "Ranbir", " EMP0004");
        dt.Rows.Add(5, "Salman", " EMP0005");
        dt.Rows.Add(6, "Aamir", " EMP0006");      
        dt.Rows.Add(7, "Akshay", " EMP0007");
        //Bind datatable to gridview
        grdEmployeeDetails.DataSource = dt;
