In this video we will discuss about merging cells in the gridview footer row. Let us understand this with an example. We want to display total employee count in gridview footer row as shown below. Notice that, all the cells in the footer row are merged.

Merge gridview row cells

Step 1: Drag and drop a gridview and a sqldatasource control on webform1.aspx

Step 2: Configure sqldatasource control 

Step 3: Associate sqldatasource control with gridview control

Step 4: Generate gridview, RowDataBound event handler method.

Step 5: Copy and paste the following code in code behind
// Variable to hold employee count
int employeeCount = 0;
protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    // If the row is Data row
    if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        // Increment employee count
        employeeCount += 1;
    // If the row is a footer row
    else if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.Footer)
        // Clear all the cells in the footer row
        // Create a new table cell
        TableCell tableCell = new TableCell();
        // Set the ColumnSpan 
        tableCell.ColumnSpan = 4;
        // Set the Text alignment
        tableCell.HorizontalAlign = HorizontalAlign.Center;
        // Set the text that you want to display in the footer
        tableCell.Text = "Total Employees Count = " + employeeCount.ToString();
        // Finally add the cell to the footer row
