Empty gridview

Hi,

I appreciate your time to help me with this issue.

I am using the data table editor for the asp.net framework. I have it applied on grid view that receives data from SQL.

It rendered beautifully except when there is no data, the whole page crashes
I tried adding <EmptyDataTemplate>There is no packagings data to browse!</EmptyDataTemplate> in the grdivew but it does not work
Once again, thank you for reading my post

    What are you returning when there is an empty data set? Datatables will work with an empty array, ie, [].

    I return nothing.
    I usually use my code-behind to populate the grid view with data from the SQL table
    Can you elaborate more, please?

    Do you get errors? What exactly happens?

    Does this mean you are populating the DOM directly? What do you do with an empty table?

    Here is an empty DOM sourced table:

    Is this what you are expecting?

    Use /language.emptyTable to change the string displayed.

    If this doesn't help please provide a link to your page or a test case showing the issue so we can help debug.
