Disallowing insert and delete of rows in a winforms datagrid

I am using a winforms datagrid to display data from a database. I wish to allow the user to modify the existing records and save the changes, but NOT delete or insert any records.

I am currently using the grid with the ReadOnly property set to False.

This works well for the modifying of existing records, but there is still a "New Row" (displayed with a * on the left hand side) at the bottom of the grid.

Does anybody know how to remove this row from the grid and still keep the ReadOnly property set to False??

Thanks.

Yes use a dataview as your datasource then you can do stuff like

dim dv as new dataview = ds.tables(0).defaultview
dv.allownew = false
dv.allowedit = true
dv.allowdelete = false

datagrid1.datasource = dv
