Allow data input

I defined a "Formview" on the page like the following. How to allow data insert when there is no records?
    <asp:FormView ID="lan_gv" runat="server"
    datasourceid="ds_int" >
    <asp:Image ID="im1" AlternateText="No Data" runat="server" />
    <HeaderStyle BackColor="#1BE0D6">
    <asp:DropDownList ID="int_list"
        DataValueField="language" >
    <asp:Textbox id="change_date" Text='<%# Bind("change_date") %>' runat="server" />

You can change the FormViewMode to insert if there is no record from your datasource.
<asp:FormView ID="FormView1" runat="server" OnDataBound="FormView1_OnDataBound" >

protected void FormView1_OnDataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (FormView1.PageCount == 0)
