Load Data to a DataGrid


I have 1 million records in a table and I need to display the data in the DataGrid using ASP.NET/C# Language. I have the Sql Server as my database. I need to display 20 records per page. What is the best or optimized solution for this ?

Hi sen007,

look at this article : http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/asp/Code/northwindLC.asp
Very good article for paging

Alright the best solution here is to refine your business logic so you don't have 1 million records.  I mean surely your user won't look through 1 million records.  So fix the logic first then profile and test.

Using datagrid custom paging will make a significant improvement to loading speed of your page.
