I have a Datagrid which show data from a database.
each time i load the data from my data vase the old data is earsed and the is replaced with the new data.

What i want is for the pervious row to remain and the new data to be appened to the end of the datagrid.

my code is as shown below :

public MainPage()
            dataGrid1.Columns.Add(new DataGridTextColumn { Header = "Year", Binding = new System.Windows.Data.Binding("year") });
            dataGrid1.Columns.Add(new DataGridTextColumn { Header = "Running", Binding = new System.Windows.Data.Binding("One") });
            dataGrid1.Columns.Add(new DataGridTextColumn { Header = "Idle", Binding = new System.Windows.Data.Binding("Two") });
            dataGrid1.Columns.Add(new DataGridTextColumn { Header = "Turned Off", Binding = new System.Windows.Data.Binding("Three") });


void client_DoWorkCompleted(object sender, DoWorkCompletedEventArgs e)

                       dataGrid1.ItemsSource = list;


how do i append the new data from the database rather than overwriting the data ??

Keep your data in a DataTable object, then bind the grid to it. When you get a new record, add it to the DataTable and refresh the binding.

I am writing it in a Silverlight Application so I am not able to use DataTable.

Add a new item to your datasource collection i.e. list.

If you have done your binding correctly, a row will get added automatically to the datagrid.

something like
list.add(new model());
where model is your model class.
Create an global declaration
ObservableCollection<person> myObs = new ObservableCollection<person>();

Add New Function

Private void AddRows(){
myObs.Add(new Person() {});

Call the above function in a button click to add new rows dynamically.

DataClass obj=new DataClass(); // this is the class used in databinding

observablecollectionobj[0] = obj ; // if want to insert at any position, you have mention the index no.
