Adding a new row to table in a windows forms application.

I'm starting to use Visual Studio to create a Windows Forms application. I've just started.
I'm using C#. Visual Studio 2010.

I used Delphi since version 1, and I feel a bit lost... no, totally lost, regarding to all data access related in Visual Studio.

In Delphi, for adding a record I used to call MyTable.Insert(), which would clear the content of my TDBEdit's controls, the fill them with data and a button with a MyTable.Post(); to save the data.

Well, that's mean that only two lines of code are required to insert a new record in a table with Delphi.
In Visual Studio, I have no idea, but I'm guessing is not that simple.

So, the first thing I want to do, is to "emulate" this Delphi behavior.
I have my text controls already bound, and they show the first row in my table (in Sql),  I added a button with a "New" caption, which I want to clear the current row data to allow entry for new data.

How do I do that? :(

There's a couple different ways you could achieve this, but you may want to take a look at the CurrencyManager

I assume you're wanting to append a new row, and not necessarily clear the current active row?

You could append a new blank row to your DataTable using:
myDataTable.Rows.Add(myDataTable.NewRow())

Open in new window
