FormView.FooterTemplate Property

Gets or sets the user-defined content for the footer row in a FormView control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
'Declaration
<PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty)> _
<BrowsableAttribute(False)> _
<TemplateContainerAttribute(GetType(FormView))> _
Public Overridable Property FooterTemplate As ITemplate
<asp:FormView>
	<FooterTemplate>ITemplate</FooterTemplate>
</asp:FormView>

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.ITemplate
A System.Web.UI.ITemplate that contains the custom content for the footer row. The default value is Nothing, which indicates that this property is not set.

The footer row is displayed at the bottom of the FormView control when the FooterText or FooterTemplate property is set. You can define your own custom user interface (UI) for the footer row by using the FooterTemplate property. To specify a custom template for the footer row, first place <FooterTemplate> tags between the opening and closing tags of the FormView control. You can then list the contents of the template between the opening and closing <FooterTemplate> tags. To control the style of the footer row, use the FooterStyle property. Alternatively, you can simply display text in the footer row by setting the FooterText property instead of this property.

NoteNote

If both the FooterText and FooterTemplate properties are set, the FooterTemplate property takes precedence.

The following example demonstrates how to use the FooterTemplate property to define a custom template to render for the footer row.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

<script runat="server">

  Sub EmployeeFormView_ItemCreated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

    ' Use the FooterRow property to retrieve the footer row.
    Dim footer As FormViewRow = EmployeeFormView.FooterRow

    ' Retrieve the FooterLabel Label control from the footer row. 
    Dim footerLabel As Label = CType(footer.FindControl("FooterLabel"), Label)

    If footerLabel IsNot Nothing Then

      ' Display the current page number.
      Dim currentPage As Integer = EmployeeFormView.PageIndex + 1
      footerLabel.Text = "Page " & currentPage.ToString()

    End If

  End Sub
