Because I am displaying multiple grids on one page, instead of having multiple "Add Row" buttons above each grid, I've placed my add buttons inside the first column of each grid, so I can add new rows from within the grid. I'm only able to use the "Add Row" buttons from within the grid when there is already a record displaying in the grid. Is it possible, instead of displaying "No records found" in the grid when there aren't any records, to have the grids always editable and displaying one empty row when the grids initially load?
This is currently not possible. The grid always shows the EmptyText when there are no items. Perhaps you can use a hybrid approach with an external button and hide it when a grid is empty.
