.net Datagrid question, Stop add new row when editing


very quick question, the answer in fact is problably only one line but i will be damned if i can find it. I have a datagrid which has a button to add new data from a custom dialog. I allow editing in the datagrid itself, what i dont want is to allow users to be able to add a new row from the automatically generated new row element at the bottom of the datagrid.

The reason for this is that this data contrains filenames which i want some level of validation over.
