Adding a new row on a bound grid

I have a requirement where I need to add a new row at run time to my databound grid. The requirement is very similar to the feature MS-Word provides with it''s tables. In those tables, as soon as you tab out of the last col of the last row, the table is added with a new row. I found that there is a property called ''EnableAddRow'' on the data grid. But I was unable to use it. The help against it says that this property allows you to add a new row to the grid if the underlying datasource supports it. Can you please explain how to achieve this funcitonality?

When you set EnableAddNew = true then the grid will show a row at the bottom marked with an Asterisk. Check out the RecordNavDataBound example, scroll to the bottom and see this row. The user can start typing in a cell in that row and a row will be added. In order to programmatically add a row, you can call grid.Binder.AddNew(), change cell values and the call grid.Binder.EndEdit(); Or you could simple call DataTable table; table.Rows.Add(table.NewRow()); if your underlying datasource is a Ado.Net DataTable Stefan
