Adding new records is disabled by default and is not supported by all views, e.g. CarouselView does not support adding records directly so its CarouselView.IsAddNewRecordSupported returns false. Also, the DataSource needs to support adding records. This can be determined by checking the RecordManager's RecordManager.DataSourceAllowsAddNew property.

To enable adding records set the FieldLayoutSettings's FieldLayoutSettings.AllowAddNew property to true.

Note: The location of the add record is specified via the FieldLayoutSettings's FieldLayoutSettings.AddNewRecordLocation property. These template add records are included in the ViewableRecords collection.
