Property Value

The total number of pages required to display the items in the DataGrid control.

Use this property to programmatically determine the number of pages required to display the items in the DataGrid control. This property is only used when the AllowPaging property is set to true.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PageCount property to determine the number of pages required to display the items in the DataGrid control.
