FormView.FooterStyle Property

Gets a reference to the TableItemStyle object that allows you to set the appearance of the footer row in a FormView control.

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

public TableItemStyle FooterStyle { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.TableItemStyle
A reference to the TableItemStyle that represents the style of the footer row in a FormView control.

The footer row is displayed at the bottom of the FormView control when the FooterText or FooterTemplate property is set. Use the FooterStyle property to control the appearance of the footer row in a FormView control. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the TableItemStyle object it returns. The properties can be set declaratively using one of the following methods:

  • Place an attribute in the opening tag of the FormView control in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the TableItemStyle object (for example, FooterStyle-ForeColor).

  • Nest a <FooterStyle> element between the opening and closing tags of the FormView control.

The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, FooterStyle.ForeColor). Common settings usually include a custom background color, foreground color, and font properties.

The following example demonstrates how to use the FooterStyle property to specify a custom style for the footer row.
