Can use the "<EmptyDataTemplate>" Tag

<EmptyDataTemplate>
   <asp:Label runat="server" ID="lblNoRecord" Text="No Records Found."></asp:Label>

                 <asp:LinkButton runat="server" ID="lnk_Add_INV" Visible="true" Text="Add New informatio " OnClick="Add_Click"></asp:LinkButton>
               
</EmptyDataTemplate>

To access the controls in the emptydatatemplate refer http://forums.asp.net/p/1436652/3240106.aspx

EmptyDataTemplate example
