Even as simple and helpful Vincent Sibal's walkthrough promised to be, it does leave the reader without a front-to-back recipe.

Is there a lab/tutorial/video out there that takes someone new to WPF, new to VS, new to C# through the
linear plumbing of getting data from a table in the Server Explorer to the new DataGrid...soup to nuts?

So far I have a tableadapter pulling test data in the IDE...now how to get it hooked up
as a valid ItemsSource for the DataGrid?

Thank you.

Hi,

You might be interested in this tutorial:

www.codeproject.com/KB/WPF/WPFDataGridExamples.aspx

whilst it is not targetted it a complete WPF novice, it does show you how to implement end-to-end scenarious for presenting a WPF DataGrid which is sychronised with a database.

If you have any questions ... just give me a shout.

This was very helpful...short and sweet.

Thanks for the assist with my initial plumbing.
