I have a dynamic grid with a template control. I have two buttons: ADD and REMOVE. When I bind the grid and click on the Add button, the last row data is displayed in the grid and all data is removed, and a blank row is created.

Here is my code:
int rowIndex = 0;

if (ViewState["CurrentTable1"] != null)

   DataTable dtCurrentTable = (DataTable)ViewState["CurrentTable1"];
   DataTable DtLast = null;
   DataRow drCurrentRow = null;

   if (dtCurrentTable.Rows.Count > 0)
       for (int i = 1; i <= dtCurrentTable.Rows.Count; i++)
           //extract the TextBox values

           TextBox box1 = (TextBox)Gridview1.Rows[rowIndex].
           TextBox box2 = (TextBox)Gridview1.Rows[rowIndex].
           TextBox box3 = (TextBox)Gridview1.Rows[rowIndex].
           drCurrentRow = dtCurrentTable.NewRow();
           drCurrentRow["SrNo"] = i + 1;
           drCurrentRow["Name"] = box1.Text;
           drCurrentRow["Status"] = box2.Text;
           drCurrentRow["Address"] = box3.Text;

       //add new row to DataTable

       //Store the current data to ViewState
       ViewState["CurrentTable1"] = dtCurrentTable;

       //Rebind the Grid with the current data
       Gridview1.DataSource = dtCurrentTable;

Can anyone please help me?

In first place, you should not use Viewstate to store datagrid data in it. It will make page a lot heavy and this will hit performance.

Instead use Caching.
You need a rebind to the source after the change. Either fetch the data again or make the necessary change in the cache/dataset and rebind it to the grid.

you are storing & rebinding grid with the same Datatable[dtCurrentTable] which is from Viewstate

so store & bind the Datatable DtLast
//Store the current data to ViewState
ViewState["CurrentTable1"] = DtLast;
//Rebind the Grid with the current data
Gridview1.DataSource = DtLast;
