    Adding rows to Web based Data Grids


    I need to only add like 5 rows to a web based data grid and i am having problems
    doing this. It seems as though there are no options for manaully adding
    rows to a grid, and it seems like it has to be done by data binding. Basically
    i want to create a grid where the first column is a description and the last
    3 columns are always the same (like check boxes saying yes, no and maybe).
    All i need to do is fill the first column but this is proving to be problemsome.
    I created a table and simply added the 5 rows and tried to data bind it
    to that column but still no beans. The grid does not even show up on the
    web page (perhaps because it has now rows???).

    If there is a way to manually add rows to a data grid that would be great
    if not could somebody please list some sample code that shows how to create
    an array, fill it with the 5 words, and then data bind that array to the
    data grid manually.

    Thanks much

    Well i figured out how to get the data binding working but i would still
    like to know if its possible add rows outside of data binding.

    One last thing, i use checkboxes (using the template column option) for the
    options, and i need to know how to retrieve input from these checkboxes inside
    of the data grid.

    Thanks for any help

    Re: Adding rows to Web based Data Grids


    Please could somebody help me better understand some aspects of the web based
    data grids. What i have done is create a web data grid that has 1 data bound
    column followed by 3 template based columns that contain Checkboxes. I need
    to be able to find out the values of the checkboxes in the different columns,
    and up to this point nothing i have tried has worked. The checkboxes themselves
    are actual controls, but i cannot find the combination of commands to access
    thier id's. I am guessing i have to access them as child controls but i
    have no idea on how to do this. Any help would be very greatly appreciated.
    I really need to figure this out to finish this app.

    First thing you have to do is defined your own id when you generating check
    boxes dynamically.And try to use FindControl method to access the value of
    check box.I did't try this.This is my idea,if this one is worked out kindly
    infor me the same.,
