I was wondering if it was possible to add empty records to a griddataboundgrid. The purpose is to fill up the empty grid space with empty records, when there is by example one record specified in the grid.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Gunther,

You do not have to fill in everything. All you have to do is call:

DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();

That is it. That adds any empty row. You are free to populate whatever field you want to populate, 1 field, 2 fields, all fields or no fields.

If your datasource is not a datatable, then you still do the same thing. You create a new item for your IBindingList collection, and then you add it to the collection.

So, the question is: Can you add a new item to the datasource and populate what you want populated? This has nothing to do with the grid, it is all about the nature of your datasource.

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.
