FormView.FooterText Property

 

Gets or sets the text to display in the footer row of a FormView control.

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

Public Overridable Property FooterText As String

Property Value

Type: System.String

The text to display in the footer row. The default is an empty string (""), 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. Use the FooterText property to specify the text to display in the footer row. To control the style of the footer row, use the FooterStyle property. Alternatively, you can define your own custom user interface (UI) for the footer row by setting the FooterTemplate property instead of this property.

System_CAPS_noteNote

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

The value of this property, when set, can be saved automatically to a resource file by using a designer tool. For more information, see LocalizableAttribute and ASP.NET Globalization and Localization.

The following example demonstrates how to use the FooterText property to specify the text to display in the footer row.
