hi,
    
    i have a radgrid in my page. in the need_datasource method i assign the grid's datasource to a list of objects returned from the business layer. but my problem is if the list is returned as null, (means no records) the grid disappears. i want the grid to show the empty item template. how to achieve this? please help.

Regards,

Hi Saravanan,

Thank you for contacting us.

The grid will not be visible if the DataSource for the grid is null. To achieve the desired functionality and show the RadGrid's empty item template when no records, you could try setting a blank object to the grid's datasource if it is null:
if(listReturnedFormBusinessLayer == null)
{
   RadGrid1.DataSource = new string[] { };
}
else
{
    RadGrid1.DataSource = listReturnedFormBusinessLayer
}

If you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us again.
