Windows Forms DataGridView FAQ PDF Download

Link to the FAQ file

A developer who has worked with Windows Forms will appreciate the importantance  of the control DataGridView to the application development. It is an all-in-one control that enables one to display, add, edit and delete data in a grid. It exposes numerous properties, methods & events to fully customize its behavior. It is therefore not uncommon that one will look for some help (apart from the documentation) when working with it.

When one goes to the Windows Forms Data Controls and Databinding forum hosted by Microsoft to seek help, he/she is asked to refer to the DataGridView FAQ before posting any query in the forum as the FAQ contains the answers to the most common questions related to the control. The link presented therein is :

However, the above-mentioned link doesn't work as it takes one to the MSDN Code Repository, where the FAQ in question can't be found. I also faced the same problem, but on a further Google search, I was able to find the FAQ .doc file hosted on a third-party file sharing site. I then converted it to a PDF file since I find it more convenient to read, and then hosted it on my SkyDrive account so that others can access it. The link to the file is provided at the very beginning of this post.

Thank you for reading this post. :-)
