The GridBoundColumn object has an Aggregate property that you can set to specify a function for aggregating the values that the column displays. The Aggregate property can be set to any of the following values: "Sum", "Min", "Max", "Last", "First", "Count", "Avg", or "Custom". When you set the Aggregate property to "Custom", the grid raises an OnCustomAggregate event, where you can calculate the aggregate in server-side code and assign the result to the Result property of the event arguments object.
