Hello Experts,

I was trying to show gridview Headers , when there is no data, but I cannot column span all columns and remove the rowstyle and show the text "No Data Present".

Sample gridview:

ID         NAME
--        ------------


Something like above.

With 4.0 you can set ShowHeaderWhenEmpty="True" and have EmptyDataTemplate to have your text.
