            public class Employee
             public Employee() { }
             public Employee(Employee emp)
                  ID = emp.ID;
                  Name = emp.Name;
                  FatherName = emp.FatherName;
                  Email = emp.Email;
             public int ID { get; set; }
             public string Name { get; set; }
             public string FatherName { get; set; }
             public string Email { get; set; }

        Employee employee = new Employee();
        employee.ID = 1;
        employee.Name = “John Cena”;
        employee.FatherName = “John”;
        employee.Email = “”;
        lstEmployee.Add(new Employee(employee));

        employee.FatherName = “Kashif”;
        employee.Email = “”;
        lstEmployee.Add(new Employee(employee));
        employee.ID = 4;
        employee.Name = “Chin Shang”;
        employee.FatherName = “Shang Woe”;
        employee.Email = “”;
        lstEmployee.Add(new Employee(employee));
        return lstEmployee;
Step 7:  Add the following code in button click method.
        List<Employee> lstEmployee = new List<Employee>();
        lstEmployee = Generate_Data();
