Remarks

The footer row is displayed at the bottom of the FormView control when the FooterText or FooterTemplate property is set. You can define your own custom user interface (UI) for the footer row by using the FooterTemplate property. To specify a custom template for the footer row, first place <FooterTemplate> tags between the opening and closing tags of the FormView control. You can then list the contents of the template between the opening and closing <FooterTemplate> tags. To control the style of the footer row, use the FooterStyle property. Alternatively, you can simply display text in the footer row by setting the FooterText property instead of this property.

Note

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