Hi currently i have custom paging enable with my datalist. However my paging, the navigation links are only Previous page and Next page. Is it possible that i change my custom paging to number paging? Could it be done?

This is my current working codes of the datalist:

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.Common;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

public partial class ProductsControls_ProductViewing : System.Web.UI.UserControl
{
    public static string Image1FileNameTumb;
    int productid;
    int currentPage;
    string categoryId;

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (!IsPostBack)
        {
            PopulateControls();
        }      
    }


    private void PopulateControls()
    {
        // Retrieve CategoryID from the query string
        categoryId = Request.QueryString["categoryId"];

        // Retrieve Page from the query string
        if (Request.QueryString["Page"] != null)
        {
            currentPage = Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString["Page"]);
        }
        else
        {
            currentPage = 1;
        }

        // If browsing a category...
        if (categoryId != null)
        {
            // Retrieve list of products in a category
            PagedDataSource objPds = new PagedDataSource();
            DataView dv = new DataView(CatalogAccess.GetProductsInCategory(categoryId));
            objPds.DataSource = dv;
            objPds.AllowPaging = true;
            objPds.PageSize = 9;

            objPds.CurrentPageIndex = currentPage - 1;
            lblCurrentPage.Text = "Page: " + currentPage.ToString();
            if (!objPds.IsFirstPage)
            {
                prevLink.NavigateUrl = Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath + "?categoryId=" + categoryId + "&Page=" + Convert.ToString(currentPage - 1);
            }
            if (!objPds.IsLastPage)
            {
                nextLink.NavigateUrl = Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath + "?categoryId=" + categoryId + "&Page=" + Convert.ToString(currentPage + 1);
            }

            dlProducts.DataSource = objPds;
            dlProducts.DataBind();
        }
    }

    protected void dlProducts_ItemCommand(object Sender, DataListCommandEventArgs e)
    {
        string cmd = ((ImageButton)e.CommandSource).CommandName;
        if (cmd == "Details")
        {
            Label ProductId = ((Label)(e.Item.FindControl("lblProductId")));
            productid = Convert.ToInt32(ProductId.Text);
            categoryId = Request.QueryString["categoryId"];
            currentPage = Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString["Page"]);
            Response.Redirect("ProductListing.aspx?productid=" + productid + "&categoryId=" + categoryId);
        }
    }
   

   
}

You can use the PageCount property of your PagedDataSource, and generate hyperlinks for each page, where you would then page to the correct page using:

objPds.CurrentPageIndex = Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString["Page"]);

e.g.

for (int i = 1; i <= objPds.PageCount ; i++)
{
  Build your anchor Links using something like "http://...../...?Page=" + i.ToString()
}
