When using a gridview for data editing purposes, there is usually some method of adding new records also.
One very neat, desirable method is to add the necessary controls to the footer of the gridview.
The problem with this is that if there is no data to begin with, the gridview does not display at all.
While I realize it can be done using the empty data row, that requires duplication of the header as well as all the necessary footer controls.
The gridview should have a property to display header/footer when there is no data.
In 1.1 the datagrid always displayed and one could easily hide it if desired.
