I have a web page where I would like to display data tiled horizontally.  The problem is that my data will have over 3,000 records.  If I use the DataList data control, it does not allow for paging.  

Is there a way to convert my code listed below into some sort of pageable DataList?  Thanks in advance!
<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:MyConnectionString %>"
        SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM Project WHERE (Orderable = '1')>
    </asp:SqlDataSource>
    <asp:DataList ID="DataList1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" Width="100%"
        RepeatColumns="4" RepeatDirection="Horizontal" CellPadding="2" CellSpacing="2">
        <ItemTemplate>
            <itemtemplate>
                    <asp:Image ID="Image2" runat="server" Width="125px" ImageUrl='<%# Eval("ID", "ImageLoader.ashx?id={0}") %>' />
                    <br />
                    <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Name")%>
                    <br /><br />
                    Amount:&nbsp;&nbsp;<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Amount")%>
                </itemtemplate>
        </ItemTemplate>
        <ItemStyle Font-Size="10px" BorderColor="Black" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" />
    </asp:DataList>

Yes DataList has no paging mechanism. You gotta make it your own, there are several ways. But the best way you can do is Binding your Datalist datasource dynamically.

You can use SqlDataAdapter, the SqlDataAdapter allow you to select and get data upon start and number of record you want to return. Try to remember the page number using ViewState and using when you fill the dataSet

Hope this helps

public DataTable getTheData()
    {
 
        DataSet DS = new DataSet();
        SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MyProject"].ConnectionString);
 
        SqlDataAdapter objSQLAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM Project WHERE (Orderable = '1'", myConnection); objSQLAdapter.Fill(DS, "Projects");
 
 
        return DS.Tables[0];
 
    }
 
    void doPaging()
    {
 
        pagedData.DataSource = getTheData().DefaultView;
 
        pagedData.AllowPaging = true;
        pagedData.PageSize = 4;
