GridView.FooterStyle Property

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

Use the FooterStyle property to control the appearance of the footer row in a GridView 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 GridView 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 GridView 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 define a custom style for the footer row in a GridView control.
