Hi Guys

I have a gridview which has Dataset as datasourse. this sql query on page load will return empty dataset. the code below will generate the first emty row.

I need to be able to click on the Add New link button and rather have the data entered in the textbox be part of the gridview as well as create another emtyp row. this can happen 'n' number of times.
I need to preserve the data from initial entries.




<EmptyDataTemplate>
                <table><tr>
                <td><asp:TextBox ID="txtGoals" runat="server" Columns="10"></asp:TextBox></td>
                <td><asp:TextBox ID="txttactics" runat="server" Columns="10"></asp:TextBox></td>
                <td><asp:TextBox ID="txtResources" runat="server" Columns="10"></asp:TextBox></td>
                <td><asp:TextBox ID="txtOwner" runat="server" Columns="10"></asp:TextBox></td>
                <td><asp:TextBox ID="txtTarget" runat="server" Columns="10"></asp:TextBox></td>
                <td><asp:TextBox ID="txtSd" runat="server" Columns="10"></asp:TextBox></td>
                <td><asp:TextBox ID="txtfd" runat="server" Columns="10"></asp:TextBox></td>
                <td><asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton3" runat="server" CommandName="AddNew" ForeColor="#FF8000"
                                Width="50px">Add New</asp:LinkButton></td>
                </tr></table>
                </EmptyDataTemplate>

No problem.

 >>then have one SAVE button which saves the whole form. to what? a database, file??

Also it maybe be helpful if you post WORKING source code with an xml datasource so I can have a look at the page itself.

Hi There,

Please post the entire source code. I suggest that you just dummy up some xml as a datasource.
