Here is the code:

        GridView1.PageIndex = e.NewPageIndex
End Sub

Hi Abdu_Allah,

What is it you are trying to do? If you are trying to set the PageIndex, there's no need, because it has already been changed. That's why that event was raised.

BTW - The reason you are getting that error is becase NewPageIndex is not a member of 'System.EventArgs', exactly as the error stated. You can only use those members available to a given object.

Then why GridView paging does not work?!

What is the alternative of NewPageIndex in ASP.NET 2.0?
In ASP.NET 1.1 NewPageIndex was a member of System.EventArgs.

NewPageIndex is a member of DataGridPageChangedEventArgs, not System.EventArgs.
