I want to insert a record in the gridview and i have designed it as the fig: below shows.
Initially there is no data in the datatable to which the gridview is bound to,so the gridview is not displayed when the page load,ok
I want to ask that is it possible to display Gridview on page load with only the header and the footer?
i.e;the user can see the header names and the textbox and drop down list at the foorter so that they can insert data in the grid?

Try using the <EmptyDataTemplate>

if you are using SqlDataSource, modify selectcommand to look like below (assuming your table is Table1 and has a field called Field1),
SelectCommand="SELECT field1 FROM table1 union all select '' from table1 having count(Field1) =0"
If there is rows in your table1, it will return the rows correctly, otherwise it will return a blank row. The
footer will still be shown in either situation.
