How to add records to a subgrid before saving the record?

Is it possible to have a subgrid on a form, add records to that subgrid all before saving the record?  If yes, how?

I know I can do it after I save the record, but need to do it before I save the record.

Any help is appreciated, thank you.

    Hello USA80,

    No, that's not possible.

    The reason is  that you need to create the parent record first (generating a recordId), so you can associate related/child records to it. That's how it works.
