I am working on a static ASP.NET mockup design (wireframes) which includes a gridview with a few sample records.

Right now I have no actual data and would like to simulate what  3 or 4 gridview records  would look like later with actual data?

How do you go about making  3 or 4 mockup records with say 4 columns of data to demonstate what the gridview would look with actual records?

Are you bound to a DataTable/DataSet?  If so, then you can just add 3 or 4 blank rows, and bind the GridView.

Not bound to anything

I just want to create 3 or 4 rows rows with some hard coded text in each row.

Something just to show in the gridview since I only have shell ( no datasource , in fact nothing)
     
MY sample GridView would look something like this:
             ticket_id      name    location
             003            Tom       NY
             005            Dick       Ca
            001            Harry      NJ

You can create an in-memory DataTable, with columns ticket_id, name, and location, and add those three records:

VB.NET example:
Dim table As New DataTable
table.Columns.Add("ticket_id")
table.Columns.Add("name")
table.Columns.Add("location")

Dim row As DataRow = table.NewRow()
row("ticket_id") = "003"
row("name") = "Tom"
row("location") = "NY"

table.Rows.Add(row)

Me.GridView1.DataSource = table
Me.GridView1.DataBind()
