How can I add the content of this clipboard to a datarow to be placed in the original datatable? The dataadapter and datatable declarations are not global.

if (this.dataGridView1.GetCellCount(DataGridViewElementStates.Selected) > 0)
{
    try
    {
 
        DataGridViewRow dgvr = new DataGridViewRow();
        Clipboard.SetDataObject(this.dataGridView1.GetClipboardContent());
        dataGridView1.Rows.Add(Clipboard.GetText());
 

    }
    catch (Exception ex)
    {
        MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
    }
}

This code gets the information of the selected row fine. How should I go about adding this to the bottom of the datagrid? The intent is to be able to edit the copied row to make a few changes to it. Should I add this to a new datatable and bind this with the original datatable to the datagrid?

This could be possible to do in a number of interesting ways.
The simplest would be to handle the the keydown event on the grid (capture Ctrl + V).
