    DataGridview update and Datagridview refresh

    What would be the similarities and differences in DataGridview.Update() and Datagridview.Refresh() methods

    What are the places to use DataGridview.Update() and Datagridview.Refresh()

    I'm referring to datagridview1.update() and datagrdview1.refresh() methods calling after the data source is set , what would be the best sequence of calling above 2 methods, what is the correct way

    datagridview1.DataSource = new List.......


    datagridview1.DataSource = new List.......

    or else when to use datagridview1.Update() or datagridview1.Refresh();

    what is the underlying theory behind the Refresh and update methods calling , since it is bit confusing

    Use datagrdview1.refresh() if it is hidden by something else, but no data changes. Update causes auto-refresh
