There are several occasions specially when accessing Web Services; data coming from the Web Service is in an XmlNode, not in DataSet and you want to display the contents of the XmlNode in a DataGrid.

 

The way to do is, simply convert XmlNode into a DataSet object and bind the DataSet to the DataGrid.

 

Dim funcAreasNode As XmlNode = GetNode()

If Not node Is Nothing And node.InnerXml.Length > 0 Then

Dim reader as XmlTextReader = New XmlTextReader(node.OuterXml, XmlNodeType.Element, Nothing)

Dim ds as DataSet = New DataSet

ds.ReadXml(reader)

End If

DataGrid1.DataSource = ds

DataGrid1.DataBind()
