This seems like a pretty simple request so I am hoping there is an easy way to satisfy it.  Can we easily change the text of the insert new row label?  I believe it starts out as insert new record or something along those lines and we would like to change the text to something else.  Is this easily possible?

Hi Andrew,

 To do that you will need to edit the template of the new row and change the text from there. Attached I am sending you a sample which achieves just that. I hope you will find it useful.

This works...thought it does seem like the kind of thing that is a common enough need that it might make sense to add it as an option on the Grid itself rather than requiring a style implementation.

Hello Andrew,

We would definitely think about providing an easier way of changing the text. 

You could try a different approach by utilizing our localization mechanism to change the text without the need to provide custom style. You can find more information about our localization mechanism here.

Since you just want to change a single text you could try something like this:

public class CustomLocalizationManager : LocalizationManager
{
  public override string GetStringOverride( string key )
  {
      switch( key )
      {
          case "GridViewAlwaysVisibleNewRow":
              return "New Insert Text" 
      }
  
      return base.GetStringOverride( key );
  }
}

public partial class App : Application
{
    public App()
    {
        LocalizationManager.Manager = new CustomLocalizationManager();
    }
}

Hope this helps.
