Is there a way to make the radgrid display a message when there is no datasource?  (This is helpful when the radgrid is first displayed)

NoRecordsTemplate

 

 

only works when the datasource is empty (not null).

Hello Mathew,

Set the DataSource for the grid initially as shown below to show the headers even if you have no records.

code:
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (!IsPostBack)
    {
        rdgDept.DataSource = String.Empty;
    }
}

Thank you for the reply.  Yes, I understand this will display the NoRecordsTemplate.  However, I'd like to have a separate message when there are no records.  I want to display a prompt like "Please fill out form to view results" when there is no datasource.  If the user fills out the form and there are no results, I'd like to display something like "Sorry, no records were found."
