DataPager - hide previous button (image type) when needed

Posted on 2009-02-13
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I am using a data pager with next previous pager fields (as images).  When the previous button is not a valid option, I would like it to be more visibly apparent.  For example, swapping out the image for a "grayed out" version, or simply just hiding the previous button.  How can I accomplish this?
<asp:DataPager ID="pgProducts" runat="server" PagedControlID="lvProducts" PageSize="3">


                            <asp:NextPreviousPagerField ButtonType="Image"  


                                PreviousPageImageUrl="/images/back.gif" />

    There is a property on the NextPreviousPagerField called RenderDisabledButtonsAsLabels, you can set that to true.  You could then use CSS to modify the label as necessary.
