I have created a grid view which is binded to a list. I have also created a list view for this particular list with some filtered data. I want to know whether is it possible to bind the sharepoint grid view with a list view instead of binding it to a normal list?

Update I have used this link

to bind my grid view to list

  • If i understood you question, you have created a view in a list and you want to bind your grid to this newly created list. Please correct me if i am wrong. Could you please share how you are binding a grid view to a list view?

Please update the code of bindToGrid() as below:

protected void bindToGrid()
    SPWeb web = SPContext.Current.Web;
    //SPList list = web.Lists["Employee"];
    SPView spView = web.Lists["Employee"].Views[<YOURVIEWNAME>];
    SPQuery spQuery = new SPQuery(spView);
    //SPListItemCollection items = list.Items;
    SPListItemCollection items = web.Lists["Employee"].GetItems(spQuery);
    DataTable dt = new DataTable();
    dt = bindToDataTable(items);
    grid.DataSource = dt;

Basically instead of fetching data from default view, we are making use of SPQuery to specify the view which we want to use. Replace <YOURVIEWNAME> in code with the name of view you want to use.
