The InitializeRow method is a helper method called by the FormView control to initialize the specified FormViewRow object.

The appropriate content is then added to the FormViewRow object. The following table describes how each row type is initialized.

Description

Data row

The contents of the ItemTemplate, EditItemTemplate, or InsertItemTemplate property are added to the FormViewRow object, depending on the value of the RowState property.

Empty data row

The value of the EmptyDataText property or the contents of the EmptyDataTemplate property is added to the FormViewRow object, depending on which property is set. If both properties are set, the EmptyDataTemplate property takes precedence.
