How to Bind a GridView Control to XML in ASP.NET

In this example, your XML content is assumed to be ready and well formatted. To be compatible with a GridView, the XML document has to have a database-like format (table and records):

    <name>ANGOLA</name><code>24</code><size>1345 amp</size>
    <name>BENIN</name><code>204</code><size>435 amp</size>
  1. Drag a GridView component from the Toolbox.
  2. Add to your GridView a PreRender event.
  3. Write your code (see below) to bind a DataSet to the GridView.

public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
	protected void MyGridView_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
		// Creates a DataSet and loads it with an Xml Content
		DataSet aDataSet = new DataSet();
		aDataSet.ReadXml(new StringReader(aXmlDoc.OuterXml));

		// Bind the DataSet to the grid view
		GridView gv = (GridView)sender;
		gv.DataSource = aDataSet;
