In this tutorial, I am going to teach you,how to populate the data grid control from Your XML Document as data source.

Default.aspx
 
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"  CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:GridView ID="dgBooks" runat="server" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333"
            GridLines="None">
            <FooterStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
            <RowStyle BackColor="#F7F6F3" ForeColor="#333333" />
            <PagerStyle BackColor="#284775" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
            <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#E2DED6" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
            <HeaderStyle BackColor="#5D7B9D" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
            <EditRowStyle BackColor="#999999" />
            <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" ForeColor="#284775" />
        </asp:GridView>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Default.aspx.cs
using System;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Data;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Xml.Linq;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
 
public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
{
  
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (!Page.IsPostBack)
        {
            loadMyGridFromXML();
        }
    }
 
    public void loadMyGridFromXML()
    {
       DataSet myDataSet = new DataSet();
       myDataSet.ReadXml(Server.MapPath("books.xml"));
       dgBooks.DataSource = myDataSet;
       dgBooks.DataBind();
    }
}
 

Before adding the above code, create an XML Page and add the following code and save it.

Books.xml
<?xml version="1.0"encoding="utf-8" ?>
<books>
