DataList.ShowFooter Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the footer section is displayed in the DataList control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public virtual bool ShowFooter { get; set; }
<asp:DataList ShowFooter="True|False" />

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the footer section is displayed; otherwise, false. The default value is true, however this property is only examined when the FooterTemplate property is not null.

Use the ShowFooter property to specify whether the footer section is displayed in the DataList control.

You can control the appearance of the footer section by setting the FooterStyle property. The contents of the footer section are controlled by the FooterTemplate property.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ShowFooter property to display the footer section in the DataList control.
