    Hi mrkmrk,

    If your DataGridView is not data bound, you can handle the CellEndEdit event of the DataGridView and check if the cell is the last cell of your DataGridView. If it is, show the MessageBox to ask the user whether to add a new row. Here is a sample for you information.

    Code Snippet

            private void Form36_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


                this.dataGridView1.AllowUserToAddRows = false;


                this.dataGridView1.CellEndEdit += new DataGridViewCellEventHandler(dataGridView1_CellEndEdit);



            void dataGridView1_CellEndEdit(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)


                if (e.ColumnIndex == this.dataGridView1.Columns.Count - 1 && e.RowIndex == this.dataGridView1.RowCount - 1)


                    if(MessageBox.Show("Do you want to add another row?","Ask", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo) == DialogResult.Yes)





    If your DataGridView is data bound, you can still take the logic, but you should not add the row to the row collection of DataGridView, you should add row to the row collection of the data source.

    Hope this helps.
    Best regards.
