    Example Code:


    <asp:Content ID="BodyContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="server">
       <asp:GridView ID="TestGrid" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false">
               <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Col1" DataField="Name" />
                       <asp:Label ID="Col2HeaderLabel" runat="server" Text="Col2"></asp:Label>
                       <asp:CheckBox ID="Col2CheckBox" runat="server" />
               <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Col3" DataField="Surname" />
        <asp:Button ID="TestButton" runat="server" Text="Test" />

    Aspx.cs ->

     protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
                TestGrid.Columns.Insert(0,new BoundField { HeaderText = "Dynamic Col", DataField = "Description" });
            protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                TestGrid.DataSource = GetList();
            private List<Info> GetList()
                List<Info> list = new List<Info>();
                list.Add(new Info { Description = "Row 1", Name = "Name 1", Surname = "Surname 1" });
                list.Add(new Info { Description = "Row 2", Name = "Name 2", Surname = "Surname 2" });
                list.Add(new Info { Description = "Row 3", Name = "Name 3", Surname = "Surname 3" });
                return list;
        public class Info
            public string Name { get; set; }

    Hi yondersever,

    Accroding to your description,I suggest you could post your codes to us.It will help us to solve your problem.

    As far as I think, you need to loop through the DataTable, then according the DataColumns to create columns in GridView. You could use the following code to get column name from Table.
