Hi,

I am new to web development, and have got myself stuck when trying to show totals in the footer of a gridview. I am building my grid from an oracle DB, and have the used the code below to generate my totals. By using debugs I can see that it is getting me the total as expected, however after looping through all the data rows it never seems to enter the elseif that check if the next row is the footer. Therefore it never shows the total in the grids footer at runtime.

Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have included my asp code and also the vb.net code used to fill the grid.

<td colspan="2">
                    <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" 
                        AutoGenerateColumns="false" DataKeyNames="category_code" 
                        runat="server" OnRowDataBound="GridView1_RowDataBound" OnRowUpdating = "GridView1_RowUpdating" 
                        OnRowEditing ="GridView1_RowEditing" OnRowCancelingEdit = "GridView1_CancelingEdit" ShowFooter="True">
                            <AlternatingRowStyle CssClass="alter_style" />
                            <RowStyle CssClass="alter_style" />
                            <HeaderStyle CssClass="loan_header"/>
                            <Columns>

where did u declare footer row in grid view

Hi,

I'm not sure I know what you mean? I thought by having ShowFooter set to true in the asp code this would simply enable the footer, thus allowing me to reference it. When I run the application a footer does appear at the bottom of the grid, however the totals fields i want to display dont show.

How do I declare the footer row for the grid?

Regards,

David.

if u want to declare footer row,u can do it by declaring footer row in grid view
by using footertemplate
<asp:TemplateField>
<FooterTemplate>

</FooterTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
