    Hi, sorry if this has been asked before but I couldnt find and answer (my searches were probably including the wrong terms.)

    When we initially add a datasource to a new grid, the property builder is automatically pupulated with the original columns ready for us to set properties.

    I'm adding/changing columns to the datatable in my datasource. Is it possible to get the Property Builder to update the column list from the datasource without me having to add new columns manually? I don't want to lose all the properties that I've previously set.

    thanks

    Hello Claire,

    There is no easy way for this. If you are regularly changing the data source it would be better to add the columns in code. Optionally you can save a copy of the Designer file and use parts of it when the data source is reset. 

    I hope this will be useful.
