I want to allow users to enter 3 new rows into a gridview if its empty
which is the best way to display them (can I use the same control names in each emptyrow)

and how do I loop through in the code behind?

Using the code below I'm only getting the first row:

  int iCount = GridView1.Rows.Count; // this only returns 0
        if (CommandName == "InsertNewRow")
            for (int iCounter = 0; iCounter <= iCount; iCounter++)
                GridViewRow emptyRow = GridView1.Controls[iCounter].Controls[iCounter] as GridViewRow;
 Discount discount = new Discount();

                discount.Description = convert.ToString(((TextBox)emptyRow.FindControl("NewRowDescription")).Text);
                discount.MinimumUnits = int.Parse(((TextBox)emptyRow.FindControl("NewRowMinUnits")).Text);
   ... etc
