Remarks

Use the InsertRowStyle property to control the appearance of the data row when a FormView control is in insert mode. When the FormView control is in insert mode, the data row displays the user-defined content specified by the InsertItemTemplate property. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the TableItemStyle object it returns.

The properties can be set declaratively using one of the following methods:

  • Place an attribute in the opening tag of the FormView control in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the TableItemStyle object (for example, InsertRowStyle-ForeColor).

  • Nest an <InsertRowStyle> element between the opening and closing tags of the FormView control.

The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, InsertRowStyle.ForeColor). Common settings usually include a custom background color, foreground color, and font properties.
