Also I tried to set the defaultmode to insert mode, but i found i can't
cancel the inserting.

What DataSource control are you using? The problem is that the DetailsView
needs to know a 'template' of what the insert data should be, so it calls
the SelectMethod to get an example of what to automatically build for ther
insert. If you're using an ODS and your select method returns null then the
DetailsView has no idea what fields to make available.

The other solution is to build the InsertTemplate for each value manually.
