Dear All.

I'm having problem on creating a DataGrid with some total fields at the
bottom area of the grid.

Inside the <aspataGrid> tag, I have assigned an event handler as follow


This is what MyDataGrid_ItemDataBound looks like.

Sub MyDataGrid_ItemDataBound(Sender As Object, E As DataGridItemEventArgs)
If (E.Item.ItemType = ListItemType.Item) Or (E.Item.ItemType =
ListItemType.AlternatingItem) Then
'I was noticed that E.Item.Cells(1) is still blank here, therefore I
just couldn't retrieve any value for my calculation sub routine
'I plan to assign the total back to footer this way
'E.Item.Cells(1).Text + String.Format("{0:c}", GrandDailySales)
End If
End Sub

My question is that how to get the value from E.Item.Cells(1) on each row ?,
because I have to pass the value I read to MyCalculatioSubRoutine for
calculating the total.

Actually I got this coding idea from MSDN, but why my one isn't working?
Is it because I placed the coding at the wrong event, or whatever?

Please anyone suggest me what to do, I don't mind if I have to entirely
change the way to code this page to make this all work out.
