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();
        }

    }

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:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.gridview.onrowcreated.aspx

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.

Reference:
http://aspalliance.com/782_CodeSnip_How_to_Display_Sum_Total_in_the_Footer_of_the_GridView_Control
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1"
 ...
<Columns>
...
<FooterTemplate>
  <%# GetTotal().ToString() %>
</FooterTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
</Columns>
</asp:GridView>
