Does .NET 2.0 offer a DataGrid equivalent to the GridView "EmptyDataText"

I would like to add this feature to my DataGrid and I'm unsure if 2.0 now offers this capability:

EmptyDataText="There are no data records to display."

Also, is there a good website that has all of the options available for DataGrid, i.e. like
AutoGenerateColumns, AlternatingItemStyle-BackColor, OnItemDataBound, EmptyDataText, etc.?

Here's the MSDN page for the data grid:

ms-help://MS.VSCC.v80/MS.MSDN.v80/MS.NETDEVFX.v20.en/cpref16/html/T_System_Web_UI_WebControls_DataGrid_Members.htm

As for the empty data, I usually but a hidden label on the page, and if there are no results, I set the text to something like "no records found" and make it visible.

The GridView control has an Empty Date Template:

<EmptyDataTemplate>
   Enter text here.
</EmptyDataTemplate>

Not that I'm aware of. You would have to code this in the code behind, say in the onprerender event of your page.

I don't know of a good reference sit eother than the msdn site...
    http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.datagrid.aspx

Of course the intellisense in VS2005 is rather excellent.

This is a good how to site

The GridView has a template, but the DataGrid does not.
