problem while removing row Dynamically from datagrid

P: n/a
Hello All,

I have problem while dynamically removing row from the Datagrid which i have added dynamically as shown in the following code snippet. The problem is that while removing dynamically added row it also removes the row at the end along with the added row.

Plz tell me if, I am missing any thing.



Asp Code==>

<asp:datagrid id="PartGrid" Runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" AllowPaging="True" ageSize="10">




<asp:LinkButton id="btnDetail" Runat="server" CommandName="Expand">+</asp:LinkButton>



<asp:BoundColumn DataField="partName" HeaderText="Part Name" />

<asp:BoundColumn DataField="partType" HeaderText="Part Type" />

<asp:BoundColumn DataField="status" HeaderText="Status" />



Code behind file (1) In the Item created event adding the Click event handler for the button

private void PartGrid_ItemCreated(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs e)


ListItemType eItemtype = e.Item.ItemType;

if ( eItemtype == ListItemType.AlternatingItem || eItemtype == ListItemType.Item)


btnDetail = e.Item.FindControl("btnDetail") as LinkButton;

btnDetail.Click += new EventHandler(btnDetail_Click);



(2)On click event Adding the new new row . In this event handler Adding the row if Button text is "+" else

I am trying to remove it. The Adding functionality working fine but while removing, it is also removing the extra row at the end. plz help me out.

private void btnDetail_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


LinkButton btnTemp = sender as LinkButton;

if(btnTemp.Text == "+")


btnTemp.Text = "-";

DataGridItem item = (DataGridItem)((LinkButton)sender).NamingContainer ; //Getting the container row

int rowIndex = ((Table)(PartGrid.Controls[0])).Rows.GetRowIndex((TableRow)item);//its row index

DataGridItem dgRow = new DataGridItem(rowIndex + 1, 0, ListItemType.Item); //new Datagrid row
TableCell cell = new TableCell();

cell.ColumnSpan = item.Cells.Count;

cell.Controls.Add(new Label());


((Table)(PartGrid.Controls[0])).Rows.AddAt(rowIndex + 1, dgRow);




btnTemp.Text = "+";

DataGridItem item = (DataGridItem)((LinkButton)sender).NamingContainer ;

int rowIndex = ((Table)(PartGrid.Controls[0])).Rows.GetRowIndex((TableRow)item);

((Table)(PartGrid.Controls[0])).Rows.RemoveAt(rowIndex + 1);
