I have a dataGrid on a winfows form which is bound to a data set.
It works fine and I want users to be able to edit the values in the grid.
However, there is always an extra line at the bottom which when clicked on allows the adding of a new row.
How can I stop this ?
Is it set in the DataGrid or in the underlying data source.
I know I can stop new rows being commited to the dataset, but what I really want is for this extra data entry line to not even appear in the grid.

Cheers.

Thanks. Didn't realise I had to stick a DataView between my Grid and Data to get this functionality.
