DetailsView.EmptyDataRowStyle Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets a reference to the TableItemStyle object that allows you to set the appearance of the empty data row displayed when the data source bound to a DetailsView control does not contain any records.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public TableItemStyle EmptyDataRowStyle { get; }
/** @property */
public TableItemStyle get_EmptyDataRowStyle ()

public function get EmptyDataRowStyle () : TableItemStyle

Property Value

A reference to the TableItemStyle that allows you to set the appearance of the empty data row.

Use the EmptyDataRowStyle property to control the appearance of the empty data row in a DetailsView control. The empty data row is displayed when the data source that is bound to the control does not contain any records. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the TableItemStyle object it returns. The properties can be set declaratively in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the TableItemStyle object (for example, EmptyDataRowStyle-ForeColor). The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, EmptyDataRowStyle.ForeColor). Common settings usually include a custom background color, foreground color, and font properties.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the EmptyDataRowStyle property to specify the font and style settings for the empty data row.
