Pagination in

In this article I am explaining How to implement paging in ASP.Net GridView control in a simple and easy way. This properties of the GridView come into play when Paging needs to be added. 1. PageSize - Sets the Size of the Page for GridView control 2. PageIndexChanging – The event that will be triggered when the page link is clicked by the user.

Here is the code for add pagination,in dynamically generated gridview.
Here you can count your various paging variables like,

from code.

just simply follow this code.
Put this code into .aspx page.

[PagerSettings FirstPageText="First" LastPageText="Last" Mode="NextPreviousFirstLast"
NextPageText="Next" PreviousPageText="Prev" PageButtonCount="3" /> ]
[asp:DropDownList ID="drpPageSize" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" OnSelectedIndexChanged="drpPageSize_SelectedIndexChanged">

[asp:ListItem Selected="True"]5[/asp:ListItem]

[asp:Label ID="PageIdxLabel" runat="server" /]


code in aspx.cs file,

protected void drpPageSize_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)

grid.PageSize = int.Parse(drpPageSize.SelectedItem.Text);


protected void grid_PageIndexChanging(object sender, GridViewPageEventArgs e)

grid.PageIndex = e.NewPageIndex;

protected void grid_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

EventManagerDataContext db = new EventManagerDataContext();

var q = from a in db.EMR_NEWs

select new
News_ID = a.News_ID,
Title = a.Title,
Text = a.Text,
Creation_Date = a.Creation_Date,
Publication_Date = a.Publication_Date,
Expiration_Date = a.Expiration_Date
int pagetotal = q.Count();

int pagerowcount = (grid.PageIndex * grid.PageSize) + grid.Rows.Count;
PageIdxLabel.Text = ((grid.PageIndex * grid.PageSize) + 1).ToString() + "to " + Convert.ToString(pagerowcount) + "of" + (pagetotal).ToString();

Hi Ketan,

I hope you are post is not completed just try to edit your post and resubmit again. When you wrote code parts you must place your code inbetween CODE blocks.
Instead of "lessthan symbol" you must use " & lt" and instead of "greaterthan symbol" you must use " & gt" and styles you try to give effectively then only user can understand the post clearly. Here your total content is in Bold format, but that's not correct you can highlight necessary points only in bold.

Hope you edit the content and resubmit the Resource again..
