    We got requirement when data is empty , we show "No records found". Grid contains command to add or edit item. if there is no data or empty datasource, when the user clicks on "NEW " button , we would like to add new dummy row. I could not see telerik grid able to add new record incase of empty datasource. Can any1 provide me any solution on this

    Hello Nannu,

    This is the expected behavior. When there is no Datasource (null), the Grid Cannot Insert the data.
    Also the GridControl will not be visible if the DataSource for the grid is empty, i.e., if you have set
    RadGrid1.DataSource = null or RadGrid1.DataSourceID = String.Empty.

    If you want to make it visible on the page then you can set the DataSource as RadGrid1.DataSource= new string[] {}
