How to define columns in datagridview programmatically?

I`m making windows application

I added 1 button and 1 datagridview.

when click the button, data showed in datagridview from DB.

And this step, I have a question.

I want to define DataGridView Columns programmatically like this

  1. First column = check box column

  2. Second column = Process column(I want to bind data here)

  3. Third column = Progress bar column(I`ll make this column)

SQL query is below

SELECT COUNT(*) as Process from Sales.SalesOrderDetail
SELECT COUNT(*) as Process from Purchasing.ProductVendor
SELECT COUNT(*) as Process from Person.Address
SELECT COUNT(*) as Process from Production.WorkOrder

And button click event is like this

private void btnStart_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["AdvConn"].ConnectionString);
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("UP_SelectTableCount", conn);
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
dt = ds.Tables[0];
metroGrid2.DataSource = dt; }

How can I add or fix my code? please help me

After the data has been added to the datagridview you can write a simple function for adding a new column like this

private void AddNewColumns()
    metroGrid2.Columns.Add("newColumnName", "Column Name in Text");
    //To add values to the column you should run a foreach loop 
    foreach (DataGridViewRow row in metroGrid2.Rows) 
        if (row.Cells[1].Value.ToString()=="1") //Some condition or value  
            row.Cells[2].Value = "50%"; 

This is just an idea about adding a column but not about adding a progress bar. But I believe this might help you because your main concern is to add a new column to the DGV. Hope this helps

For adding a progress bar column Populating a DataGridView with Text and ProgressBars might help you
