Show Header and Footer of GridView when no Data returned


try this example to Show Header and Footer of GridView when no Data returned:

private void ShowNoResultFound(DataTable source, GridView gv)
        source.Rows.Add(source.NewRow()); // create a new blank row to the DataTable
        // Bind the DataTable which contain a blank row to the GridView
        gv.DataSource = source;
        // Get the total number of columns in the GridView to know what the Column Span should be
        int columnsCount = gv.Columns.Count;
        gv.Rows[0].Cells.Clear();// clear all the cells in the row
        gv.Rows[0].Cells.Add(new TableCell()); //add a new blank cell
        gv.Rows[0].Cells[0].ColumnSpan = columnsCount; //set the column span to the new added cell
        //You can set the styles here
        gv.Rows[0].Cells[0].HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center;
        gv.Rows[0].Cells[0].ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
        gv.Rows[0].Cells[0].Font.Bold = true;
        //set No Results found to the new added cell
        gv.Rows[0].Cells[0].Text = "NO RESULT FOUND!";

private void BindGridView()
        DataTable dt = new DataTable(string user);
        SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(GetConnectionString());
            string sqlStatement = "SELECT* FROM Orders WHERE UserID = @User";
            SqlCommand sqlCmd = new SqlCommand(sqlStatement, connection);
            sqlCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@User", user);
            SqlDataAdapter sqlDa = new SqlDataAdapter(sqlCmd);
            if (dt.Rows.Count > 0) //Check if DataTable returns data
                GridView1.DataSource = dt;
            Else //else if no data returned from the DataTable then

            {    //call the method ShowNoResultFound()

        catch (System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException ex)
                string msg = "Fetch Error:";
                msg += ex.Message;
                throw new Exception(msg);



Hope this helps
