    Is it possible to Store the format of an Datagrid (color,size,... of
    each Cell/Row/Column), to use it on another Datagrid??

    At the Moment I have a Datagrid an I store it in a Session-Variable

    Session("Print") = DataGrid1

    Then I open a new Webpage

    language=JavaScript>'print.aspx?Table=Turnover&Start=" &
    Request("Start") & "&Ende=" & Request("Ende") & "&DepValue=" &
    Request("DepValue") & "&StoValue=" & Request("StoValue") &

    At this Page I have an Datagrid and I'm trying to Reassign the Stored

    DataGrid1 = Session("Print")

    In the Datagrid1 is the same as in the Stored one, but the Datagrid1
    isn't shown but Datagrid1.Visible =true

    Hi Thomas,

    thanks for your answer. The problem with CSS is, that the data I read
    into my Datagrid can be different, also the width, backcolor,.. from
    the columns, that all depends on the shown informations, and is
    genereated "by hand".

    That's why I'm searching for a way to store the

    A short description of my Project:

    I have 6 different Categories for my Data's. And one Datagrid that
    displays the data which is choosen. That all works fine, because I know
    how the Datagrid should look for each Category.

    But now I've added a Print-preview Button which opens a new site and on
    this my datagrid is displayed without Paging, so I can Print all Rows
    at once. Also works fine, except the DatagridStyle that should look
    like in the "original". And I don't want to add the 6
    Datagrid-format-routines to the Print-Preview.aspx.

    Can't be that there is no "professional" way of copy the Styleinfo's.

  3. Are u saying that you are generating data dynamically hence you are creating
    the dg style dynamically?
    If so you can apply CSS based on what data is shown dynamically too right?
    Or did I get you wrongly?

    I have different data's about a store. In one category I show the
    Turnover from one day in another category from a month and in the next
    one the ZIP-Code from the Customers and so on.

    I get the data out of an Database and display it in my datagrid. The
    data's are always different for the categories and have to be shown
    For eg.
    The fist colum should be written left-aligned the next one
    right-aligned and the background from the 3rd should be RED. In the
    next category it is displayed all centered an WHITE background.

    Hmmm while reading this I think I get an idea of what you think about.

    You say if I know how the data should be shown I should generate my CSS
    this way that i have for each cateory a CSS-Style that defines the
    style of my Datagrid.

    Sounds like a good idear, but I have no plan how I have to write a
    CSS-Style for a whole datagrid/table, is that possible? If i write it
    for each row seperatly that would be a lot of code.

  5. Yes that is what I am saying, you are the author of the data in the grid, so
    author the css for it as well at the same go.
    Lot of code yes, but then you are trying to achieve something of a very high
    end right?
    So what's the problem with lot of code?
    If I were you, I'd write a function and I will let the function change the
    apprearance of all the datagrids.
    The funcion will check for the value present and apply CSS accordingly.
    Doesn't sound very difficult, does it?
