Thanks for posting to asp.net forum.
If the datasource of gridview is null, there will be no data bind to gridview. So we cannot see anything to be shown
in the gridview footer template. If you want to show the "Total: 0" when gridview datasource is null, I suggest you add two label
out gridview to show price total information.
Hope this helps. Thanks.
