Hi, I am totally new to this stuff, and I would like to know how to create a full custom web server control that allows me to do paging (set number of lines per page, get number of all pages, and to know the current page I am at)

The content that would be display would come from a array(list).

Any idea on doing that? I only know how to do the REALLY basic stuffs and I have no idea where to start.

The articles don't really code them inside the web control itself.

See attached code snippet. Am I in the correct direction? How should I continue?

Also, I need to raise the PageChange event whenever the next/prev buttons are clicked, so that it can provide information on the line count of the last sentence on the current page with the e parameter.
