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();

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

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");

You can add the footer row to the table definition and then call a function to return the calculated totals:
Your OnRowCreated can can record the total in a Property and then the call to GetTotal() will return that Property value.

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1"





  <%# GetTotal().ToString() %>
