Insert Extra Row into Gridview

Hi All

I have a Gridview which is databound which by default has a column containing textboxes within it's ItemTemplate.

What I would like to do is add an extra row (which will include a textbox) at the top of my Gridview which will enable me to add a value and then automatically populate the remainder Gridview rows.

Could any point me in the right direction on how to achieve this?

Many thanks

I would do it by creating my own datatable with columns that match the database query you're returning, then add a blank row to the datatabe, *then*, loop through the database query and add the rows to my custom datatable

Thanks Roopesh_7, I think I see how to insert an extra row. But would you or anyone know how I could make each row within a column reflect the value within a textbox which..

What I am trying to acheive is an 'Apply to all' function as some of the values within my gridview would be the same for each row.

For your info, my Grdiview functions similar to a spreadsheet thanks to the following posting... http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/ASP.NET/Q_22908492.html

Many thanks

It would be very similar to the post you linked to:

   Protected Sub btnSubmit_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSubmit.Click
        For Each gvr As GridViewRow In gvPeople.Rows
            If gvr.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
                CType(gvr.FindControl("tbFirstName"), TextBox).Text = "EveryoneIsNamedSam"
            End If

        Next
    End Sub

Hi

Regarding adding a new row to my Gridview, I am already using the Header row for header information and what I need to be able to do is add another row after the header but before the databound rows.

I can't seem to locate a way to acheive this as yet.

Does anyone have any ideas that they would mind sharing?
