Hello

System: ASP.NET AJAX v2012.1.215.40
Visual Studio 2010

We use DatasourceID property and the ShowInsertItem() function of RadListView to display at the same time the data by  <ItemTemplate> and the insertion by <InsertItemTemplate>. Everything works fine, except when the data are empty. In this case, the content of <EmptyDataTemplate> isn't displayed if ShowInsertItem() is used.
If the <ItemTemplate> can be displayed at the same time that <InsertItemTemplate>, the display of
<EmptyDataTemplate> should follow the same logic.

Is there an option to force the display of <EmptyDataTemplate> while the <InsertItemTemplate> is showed?

Best regards,
Alain

Hello Alain,

This is intended behavior of the control, the idea is that once you have an insert from, the control is no longer empty. If you want to have different appearance in this scenario, you can specify it in the InserItemTemplate, initially invisible, on PreRender to check the item count in the control and if it is 0, to show this specific part of the template.

All the best,
