The Datagrid is just about the coolest thing in ASP.net except for one omission...there is no way of displaying images in a datagrid unless the image is in a database. Is it that hard to make it so that you can just display an image by manipulating the ID of a record for example? Instead of stashing the image for item # 234 in a database, it would be so much easier to just tell it to display image 234.gif in the images folder. I have really wanted to use teh datagrid due to its sorting, paging, and countless other features, but just because I need to display an image with each record, I am forced to do everything manually with a datareader. I am so annoyed at this one tiny omission and have spent so much time enjoying all the datagrid features, and now I have to start from scratch. Has anyone heard of plans to change this?
