Hi Ruchi

U can use footer template and add textboxes and one button to Create New it will generate textboxes and save it will save to database....

u have to write this code in source file
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" ShowFooter="True" Width="559px">
<table width="500">
<td width="50"> <asp:TextBox ID="txt1" runat="server" Height="20%" Width="50"> </asp:TextBox></td>
<td width="100"> <asp:TextBox ID="txt2" runat="server" Height="20%" Width="100"></asp:TextBox></td>
<td width="100"> <asp:TextBox ID="txt3" runat="server" Height="20%" Width="100"></asp:TextBox> </td>
<td width="100"> <asp:TextBox ID="txt4" runat="server" Height="20%" Width="100"></asp:TextBox> </td>
<td width="10"><asp:Button ID="btn1" runat="server" Text="Save to Database" OnClick="grid_btn_click"/> </td>

<td width="10"><asp:Button ID="Button2" runat="server" Text="Add New" OnClick="create_btn"/> </td>

.cs file
protected void create_btn(object sender, EventArgs e)
TextBox f1 = new TextBox();
f1.ID = "foter1";

TextBox f2 = new TextBox();
f2.ID = "foter2";

TextBox f3 = new TextBox();
f2.ID = "foter3";

TextBox f4 = new TextBox();
f4.ID = "foter4";

//u can access the textboxvalue in this way
protected void grid_btn_click(object sender, EventArgs e)
TextBox t1 = (TextBox)GridView1.FooterRow.FindControl("txt1");
TextBox t2 = (TextBox)GridView1.FooterRow.FindControl("txt2");
TextBox t3 = (TextBox)GridView1.FooterRow.FindControl("txt3");
TextBox t4 = (TextBox)GridView1.FooterRow.FindControl("txt4");
string str = "insert into student values(" + t1.Text + ",'" + t2.Text + "','" + t3.Text + "','" + t4.Text + "') ";

Thank you .
I will try the code.
I was using CommandEventArgs instead of EventArgs so may be bcoz of that i was getting the textbox null.

Hi Susant,
I tried your code it works as i want. But there is a problem in it i.e once i insert the record the database is updated but after that if i refresh my page then the previous record is again appended to the database.

I tried to put some validation like checking the textbox's value,etc but it doesn't work. Can you help me out ?

Hi Ruchi

create one method show_data() it will collect all the value from database and bind to the grid..
and call that show_data() method in page load..as well save btn click event.. so in page looad event it will fire and it will collect the records from database and show in grid I think it will work fine..

And regarding validation what type of valication u want...

Few days before u send one qns about .pdf reader whether u successed on that?
