1. Why can I not simply set the datasource for the load-on-demand child grid. As opposed to needing
to build each grid row from the corresponding datarow.

In the code below I'd like to simply set the datasource as in the second line of code. But I have to
build each row as in the remaining lines of code. Why can't I simply use the datasource?

2. I specify each column in the columns collection editor (same as ".Cells" below) of the grid's first
template, things like Name, HeaderText and FieldName. If I remove Name in the columns collection editor,
the code below won't work. (FieldName doesn't seem to be needed.) So somehow this thing called
SourceCollection is connection to the template. What is the connection?

3. I'm trying to set the first item's (called DueDate) FormatString to {0:dd/MM/yyyy}. If I don't set it,
DueDate displays with hour/minute/second (which is zero). If I do set it in the collection editor,
same result. I can't seem to set it in code (in ".Cells"). How can I set FormatString?

--------------- code snippet from RowSourceNeeded below ----------------
dt As DataTable = .FillTable("usp_SelectPTA2_TicketAssignments")
'e.Template.DataSource = dt
''' why do I need the rest of this code?? '''
For Each dr As DataRow In dt.Rows
    Dim row As GridViewRowInfo = e.Template.Rows.NewRow
    With row
        .Cells("DueDate").Value = dr("TICKET_DUE_DATE")
        .Cells("AssignTo").Value = dr("AssignedTo")
        .Cells("Reason").Value = dr("TICKET_DUE_DATE_CHANGE_REASON")
        .Cells("Notes").Value = dr("TICKET_ASSIGMENT_NOTES")
        .Cells("AssignedBy").Value = dr("AssignedBy")
        .Cells("AssignedDate").Value = dr("TICKET_ASSIGNED_TO_DATETIME")
    End With
