My suggestion would be to create a DataTable and store it in the viewstate (or session if you need to maintain it cross-page) and add rows to the datatable which will be bound to your gridview.


// DataTable accessor
protected DataTable DT
{
   get
   {
       return ViewState["DT"] AS DataTable;
   }
}


// This is roughly drawn up without VS help
// Make sure you check for DT being null if it's possible
// It also doesn't include the initialization for the DT
protected void populateGridView(string x, string y)
{
   DataRow dr = DT.NewRow();
   dr["x"] = x;
   dr["y"] = y;
   DT.Rows.Add(dr);
}


// Remember that databinding happens after PreRender event
protected void Page_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   myGridView.DataSource = DT;
   myGridView.DataBind();
}

myGridView.DataSource = <your object name goes here>;
   myGridView.DataBind();
