  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;		gv.DataBind();	}}
