GridView.FooterRow Property

Gets a GridViewRow object that represents the footer row in a GridView control.

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

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public virtual GridViewRow FooterRow { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRow
A GridViewRow that represents the footer row in a GridView control.

Use the FooterRow property to programmatically access the GridViewRow object that represents the footer row in a GridView control.

NoteNote

The FooterRow property is available only after the GridView control creates the footer row in the RowCreated event.

This property is commonly used when you need to programmatically manipulate the footer row, for example when adding custom content. Any modification to the FooterRow property must be performed after the GridView control has been rendered; otherwise, the GridView control will overwrite any changes.

The following example demonstrates how to use the FooterRow property to display the sort direction in the footer row.

    GridViewRow headerRow = CustomersGridView.HeaderRow;   

    // Get the footer row.
    GridViewRow footerRow = CustomersGridView.FooterRow; 

    // Set the font color of the header and footer rows
    // based on the sort direction. 
    switch (CustomersGridView.SortDirection)
    {
      case SortDirection.Ascending:
        headerRow.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;
        footerRow.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;

        headerRow.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Black;
        footerRow.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Black;
        break;
    }

    // Display the sort order in the footer row.
    footerRow.Cells[0].Text = "Sort Order = " + CustomersGridView.SortDirection.ToString();

  }
