Is there some way that the GridView could detect that a column value was an image url while in AutoGenerateColumns = True mode?
I have a data source that has a lot of regular data and one column that is a thumbnail of the product image.  I know I can set AutoGenerateColumns = False and create a column for each individual data element but it would be nice if AutoGenerate could detect that a data element was an ImageColumn and use the URL in the data as the source.

Hi Chris,

You can try to handle AutoGeneratingColumns event of the grid and perform the logic you require inside.
Let me know in case you need further assistance with that.

Thanks.  That worked, I just added this to the AutoGeneratingColumn method:

e.Column = new GridViewImageColumn() { DataMemberBinding = new Binding("ThumbnailURL") };
