    Hello Everyone,

    In my gridview, I changed some of the bound columns to template columns, I
    noticed that the template column is not recognized inside the RowDataBound
    event method. The reason I changed the bound columns to template columns so
    that I can add the total column in the footer. I guess I cannot do that with
    bound columns.
    If I do e.Row.Cells[5].Text then 5th column is not recognixed inside the
    Rowdatabound event, but If i do e.Row.Cells[4].Text then it is recognized.
    Please let me know what am I doing wrong.

    <asp:GridView ID="dgAgentActivity" runat="server"
    AutoGenerateColumns="false" CellPadding="0" CellSpacing="1"
    BackColor="AliceBlue" OnRowDataBound="dgAgentActivity_RowDataBound"
    OnRowCreated="dgAgentActivity_RowCreated" ShowFooter="true">

    <asp:BoundField HeaderText ="Time" DataField="SwitchTime" />
    <asp:BoundField HeaderText ="State1" DataField="TerminalState" />
    <asp:BoundField HeaderText ="State2" DataField="AgentState" />
    <asp:BoundField HeaderText ="Que" DataField="Queue" />
    <asp:BoundField HeaderText ="calculated Time"
    DataField="calculated Time"/>

    <asp:templatefield headertext="LogOut" >

    <%#Eval("LogOut", "{0:c}")%>
    <asp:label id="TotalTime" runat="server"/>
    <asp:BoundField HeaderText ="test1 DataField="Not Ready" />



    protected void dgAgentActivity_RowDataBound(object sender,
    GridViewRowEventArgs e)

    What i am going to tell is very basic but hoping that might help you.
    You see it is zero based index.That is e.Row.Cells[4].Text will return
    content of 5th column and .Row.Cells[0].Text will return content of 1st column
    Hope this helps

    Hi Manish,

    Thanks for responding. I already know about zero based index. I think
    template columns use differnt command to access the cells than bound columns.
