GridView.PageCount Property

Gets the number of pages required to display the records of the data source in a GridView control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public virtual int PageCount { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of pages in a GridView control.

When the paging feature is enabled (by setting the AllowPaging property to true), use the PageCount property to determine the total number of pages required to display the records in the data source. This value is calculated by dividing the total number of records in the data source by the number of records displayed in a page (as specified by the PageSize property) and rounding up.

The following example demonstrates how to use the PageCount property to determine the total number of pages displayed in the GridView control.

    DropDownList pageList = (DropDownList)pagerRow.Cells[0].FindControl("PageDropDownList");

    // Set the PageIndex property to display that page selected by the user.
    CustomersGridView.PageIndex = pageList.SelectedIndex;

    // Retrieve the DropDownList and Label controls from the row.

      // Calculate the current page number.
      int currentPage = CustomersGridView.PageIndex + 1;     

      // Update the Label control with the current page information.
      pageLabel.Text = "Page " + currentPage.ToString() +
        " of " + CustomersGridView.PageCount.ToString();
