Is it possible to control the number of Gridview or table rows ?

In the Gridview, I have added itememplatefield and d placed textboxes and dropdowns in several cells on same row. Is it possible add  the number ROW with the predesigned controls in teh cells display\ too
when the appropraite number rows are defined in the textbox

Yes it is possible.
1) Add onchange event to textbox and autopostback property to true like
 <asp:TextBox
        id="txtSearch"
        AutoPostBack="true"
        OnTextChanged="txtSearch_TextChanged"
        Runat="server" />

2) In txtSearch_TextChanged event

 protected void txtSearch_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       gv1.PageSize= e.NewPageSize;
       gv1.PageIndex = 0;
       // Add code to bind grid e.g gv1.DataSouce = ..; and gv1.DataBind();
    }

Some modification in above code

protected void txtSize_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       gv1.PageSize= Convert.toString(txtSize.Text); // Size from your textbox
       gv1.PageIndex = 0;
       // Add code to bind grid e.g gv1.DataSouce = ..; and gv1.DataBind();
    }

What I mean here is that I have a textbox where I can input a number. That number will determine the number of Gridview rows which is produce when a buton is clicked.

Is that the number of rows in a page or the number of empty rows added to the grid?

Empty rows. The point and I know u have ideas is to limit and exact the rows for data entry and not exceed it. For ex.

As I said in other question, I am not aware of a way of adding empty rows in gridview directly.
