    How can I create an Excel like blank worksheet using C1Datagrid?
    Basically, I want a blank C1Datagrid with blank cells. User can enter/edit values in those cells, creating tables on the fly. Later I want to save this user data in the CSV format.
    Please help.

    I would recommend you to use the "FlexSheet" control instead of "C1Datagrid" control to achieve your requirement.
    FlexSheet for WPF is a fast, lightweight, and powerful control that extends the functionality of C1FlexGrid to provide many Excel-like features.
    To know more about Flexsheet, please refer the following documentation link:

    Thank you for your response, Mohitg.
    I created a C1FlexSheet sample and typed in few values, creating a matrix of size 3x4 and left the remaining cells blank. When I exported the sheet to CSV, I got my 3x4 data but along with that I got lot of empty double quotes, for blank cells. How can I drop these empty cells (unused cells) during exporting to CSV?
