Is it possible to open DetailsView in Insert Mode ,direcly from the menu. I mean I don't woant to open the GridsViews first and then the details View.

I need to implement a "Create na new user functionality." To do that , I want that whenever I click "New user" menu, A details View in insert mode is opened.
Yes I am opeing details View Mode in insert mode,  whenever I click the menu New user, but it first opens the gird view and i click the edit or new button in any of the rows, then a details view in inser mode is opened. I want to get rid of this Grid view from this functioanlity, and want DEtialsView  to be directly associated with the New user menu

You can use the ChangeMode behind your button

Example: DetailsView1.ChangeMode(DetailsViewMode.Insert);

Changing mode for a dEtailsMode is not a problem, As it is in my question description, that I want to use details view to create a new user, and i should not be dependant to any gridview. Just like we create an new page for new user creation , that page is openied against a menu. I am doing all that stuff in detailsview insert mode.

The only thing I needed is t owork only with DetailsView ion this page.
I hope you have understood my question

Can't you put the DetailsView1.ChangeMode(DetailsViewMode.Insert); code in the Page_Load function?

Can't you add a gridview, with only an inserttemplate then?
Why not use a Gridview for this? And maybe you can change your topic title, because this is probably the confusing part of your question.

Can you take a look at this: http://quickstarts.asp.net/QuickStartv20/aspnet/doc/ctrlref/data/detailsview.aspx

The last example is doing what you expect I believe.. see the button "Add new author"

I understand that, but If you take a look at the code behind of the example, perhaps you can add the same behind your menu-structure. The example will open a new, empty, detailview where you can insert your data.

Also here you can find an example where no gridview is used
