PageIndexChanged and GridView - how to use

Hi, I am very new to web development, and would appreciate any advice given that helps me get going again.

Basically I just need to know how to use the pageindexchanging event on a gridview.

I have bound my gridview to a dataset (which in my example contains 18 records).

I am allowing paging on the gridview and set a limit of 5 results per pagesize, therefore I get 4 pages indicated on my gridview. However when I select the 2nd 3rd or 4th page I started getting an error about pageindexchanging not being handled.

So I created a sub routine to handle this event, but I do not know what to put in this Sub. At the moment the sub routine is blank but my gridview does not show when the page refreshes after selecting the 2nd 3rd or 4th page.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks
...Steve

Hi steve,
  have a look at this link to msdn  it talks about this event  http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.gridview.pageindexchanged.aspx    and it basically shows this code...

Sub CustomersGridView_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
     
    If Not IsPostBack Then
   
      ' Call a helper method to display the current page number
      ' when the page is first loaded.
      DisplayCurrentPage()
     
    End If
   
  End Sub

  Sub CustomersGridView_PageIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
 
    ' Call a helper method to display the current page number
    ' when the user navigates to a different page.
    DisplayCurrentPage()
 
  End Sub

  Sub DisplayCurrentPage()
 
    ' Calculate the current page number.
    Dim currentPage As Integer = CustomersGridView.PageIndex + 1

    ' Display the current page number.
    Message.Text = "Page " & currentPage.ToString() & " of " & _
      CustomersGridView.PageCount.ToString() & "."
   
  End Sub

Hopefull this will help.

Hi

The only thing u have to do is to increment the pageindex of ur grid on index change event..

 Private Sub urGridName_PageIndexChanged(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As           System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridPageChangedEventArgs) Handles urGridName.PageIndexChanged
            urGridName.CurrentPageIndex = e.NewPageIndex
            BindTheData()
        End Sub

U can directly get this event in code behind by just selecting the grid event from the dropdpwnlist of methods

And just add these two lines in the method
   urGridName.CurrentPageIndex = e.NewPageIndex
and  
BindTheData()  //function in which u bind data to the grid

Hope this will help u

Just check this Link it might help u thouroughly with example
