Creating an edit row on a DataGrid

Posted on 2012-08-30

Last Modified: 2012-12-20

I am developing a ASP.NET application that displays a DataGrid for editing purposes. The DataGrid is bound to a DataSet that is associated to a SQL table via a DataAdapter. When this application is first deployed, the SQL Table will have been built but will be empty, so when the DataSet is bound to the DataGrid and the DataGrid is displayed, there will be no rows to display - only the column headers. How do I present the first blank row to the user for data entry? If there is initial data in the SQL table, I have been able to display it and have the user edit this data. I just haven't been able to figure out how to present a blank row.

Thx for any pointers/help you can provide ...

Have you looked at the AllowUserToAddRow event of the datagrid viewer?  If I remember right, that will add a row at the bottom of the data that is fully editable and blank.
