Can't get DataGrid to page. in C#

hello experts,

 I am having a heck of a time with a datagrid. This datagrid gets populated on a button click with results from a database. I want the datagrid to display the first 10 results and then be able to "page" to the next results and so on...... I can get the datagrid to page but other than that I cant get the darn thing to work for anything....

in the DataGrid1 Propertis page I have allow paging and allow custom paging selected with the page siae = 10. Show navigation buttons is selected as well... what am I doing wrong.
<asp:DataGrid ID="DataGrid1" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" 
        AllowSorting="True" ShowFooter="True" AllowCustomPaging="True">
                <PagerStyle NextPageText=">" PrevPageText="<" BackColor="#FFCC66" 
                    ForeColor="#333333" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
            </asp:DataGrid>

take out AllowCustomPaging or set it to false :)


had not noticed that you had it set to true

Private Sub GridPageIndexChanged(source As Object, e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridPageChangedEventArgs)
      DataGrid1.CurrentPageIndex = e.NewPageIndex
      'Bind the DataGrid again with the Data Source
      DataGrid1.DataSource = dataSet1
      DataGrid1.DataBind()
End Sub

and in the ASPX:


        AllowSorting="True" ShowFooter="True" AllowCustomPaging="True" OnPageIndexChanged="GridPageIndexChanged">

this is how I have it working... I tried to put your solustion in and it does not llike it.... and its in a public function.... I cant figure out why it wont use it.

 public void work()
    {
        System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection con4 = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection();
        con4.ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["strDBCourseStandard"].ConnectionString;
        con4.Open();
        string strSQL = "Select distinct * from schedule Where SchoolYear = 2008";
        SqlCommand objCommand = new SqlCommand(strSQL, con4);
        SqlDataReader objReader = objCommand.ExecuteReader();
        DataGrid1.DataSource = objReader;
        DataGrid1.DataBind();
        objReader.Close();
      
    }

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        smash();
        work();
        working2();
    }

private void GridPageIndexChanged(object source, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridPageChangedEventArgs e)
    {
        DataGrid1.CurrentPageIndex = e.NewPageIndex;
        //Bind the DataGrid again with the Data Source
        DataGrid1.DataSource = objreader; <---- it does not like the datasourse...... any Ideas?
        DataGrid1.DataBind();
    }

In a web based application, an objects lifetime is only during one execution. Once the page gets rendered and the user initiates another postback... object that were created on a prior call are no longer accessible. You need to recreate the reader object (or otherwise store it in a session variable - and should you decide to take this approach ... rather use a dataset as opposed to a datareader).

Try changing the GridPageIndexChanged method to this:

private void GridPageIndexChanged(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridPageChangedEventArgs e)
{
     DataGrid1.CurrentPageIndex = e.NewPageIndex;
    work();
}

'Also make sure that you have changed the ASPX file accordingly (the part in BOLD in one of my previous posts here).

should be:

you are using the wrong event. See comment 33559721

sorry.. my bad...

you can now delete:
protected void DataGrid1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, DataGridPageChangedEventArgs e)
    {
        DataGrid1.CurrentPageIndex = e.NewPageIndex;
        work();
            }

and also remove this from the ASPX:
onselectedindexchanged="DataGrid1_SelectedIndexChanged"

Still not paging through the records after the changes project builds but still not working? Did I forget anything?

MlandaTCommented:
Does it stop in the GridPageIndexChanged method if you put a breakpoitn and try to page?
0
 
HawaiiDragonAuthor Commented:
No actually it will load watever page is selected from the bottom but will not load the information from that page. i.e. : on the list select page 6 and then it refreshes but the information that should be on page six is not displaying on the information on page one. I did add more code to see if that would help with the paging...

put breakpoint on this line and let's see if it works..         DataGrid1.CurrentPageIndex = e.NewPageIndex;

HawaiiDragonAuthor Commented:
It hits the breakpoint and states
DataGrid1.CurrentPageIndex {DataGrid1.CurrentPageIndex 0}
= e.NewPageIndex; {e.NewPageIndex 5}

I can screen share with you if you like.
