Default Need help understanding databinding

I am binding a dataSet to a GridView in C#:

GrivView1.DataSource = ds.Tables[0];


<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False">

I have books on ASP.NET 2.0 and books on C# and books on ADO and SQL. What I can’t figure out is how to combine custom code with GridView. How do I set all the ASP properties for this GridView, so that I can control the formatting for the columns?

Through ASP, the syntax is:

<asp:BoundField DataField="FieldID" HeaderText="FieldID" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="FieldID" />

But, when I’m handing the binding in C# instead, I don’t understand how to access all the ASP properties.

 How, for example, would I change the header text on the third column?

Thanks for any help with this question.
