Issue adding grandchild to child

Following Rocky's suggestion I created an "add" method in my grandchild collection...

public void Add(Guid id)
  int before = this.Count; 

  grandchild child = grandchild.NewGrandChild(id);

  int after = this.Count;


when I call the Add methd and check the "before" and "after" all looks ok. "after" = "before" + 1.


private void addGrandChildButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
 ChildSelect dlg = new ChildSelect(); 
 if(dlg.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)  
  int count = _parent.Children[currentIndex].GrandChildren.Count;


When i check the count here there is no change. It is as if no grandchildren were added..

Does anyone have any idea why, or what the problem could be?

I havn't been able to find the source of this problem yet. But i didn't uncover another problem that is probably related.

Changes to my Child ojects are not saving. I noticed that when i check my parent oject, the child that i just changed doesn't have the changes that i just made on the UI. But if i look at the child object in the childBindingsource the changes are there. So there seems to  be a dissconnect between my parent object and the child binding soure.

I've deleted the child bindingsource and added a new one. Same issue.

Any ideas?

Update :

in order to get this to work i had to add this line of code to my BindUI() method. I shouldn't need it, but it doesn't work without it.

this.chidrenBindingSource.DataSource = _parent.Children;
