I set up a datagridview, it contains 6 columns, 2 buttons, 2 fields, and 2 comboboxes, when I link the LinqToSql datasource to the datagridview's datasource it loads the fields I defined, and then appends all the fields in the database table to it as well dynamically.  Any thoughts on why this might be happening, and more importantly, how do I fix it?

Thank you in advance,
Jim

Hello James Atherton,

By default, AutoGenerateColumns of MasterGridViewTemeplate is set to true and when you bind a grid columns are generated. In your scenario - to stop this automatic generation - you must add the following snippet before you bind to a LinqToSql data source:

this.radGridView1.MasterGridViewTemplate.AutoGenerateColumns = false
