I want to add the values in the column and place the result in the gridview footer row. I'm using below code but its getting fired before i fill the gridview and going into header row if statement.
Could you please tell me which event to use to get the values in the footer row.
Note: The values i'm adding are in the label inside the gridview. I need to manually enter the values inside the gridview and perform calculations.

protected void GridViewHW_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
        DataRowView tabledata = e.Row.DataItem as DataRowView;
        if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.Header)
            TotalHWCost = 0;
        else if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
            TotalHWCost += Convert.ToInt16(tabledata[3]);
        else if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.Footer)
            Label TotalHWCostref = e.Row.FindControl("LabelTotalHardwareCost") as Label;
            TotalHWCostref.Text = "$"+TotalHWCost.ToString();

Watch Question

There is an OnRowAdded event that you could use....


I didnt find any onrowadded event but i can view onrowcommand,onrowcreated...Can I you any of them??If so please send the code how to take control of labels inside the grdivew.


Can I use any of them OnRowCommand/OnRowCreated??
They are both used slightly differently.
OnRowCommand is used when a command button is used to update the row. The OnrowCreated fires when a new row is added.
Here's a goog article on how and when to use both:

As long as you have the given the Labels id's in the row, you be able to reference them using code like:
Label label = (Label)e.Row.FindControl("myLabel");


Now how should i proceed to perform calculations in the column and get the result in the footer row.
