PreviousPageImageUrl Property

PagerSettings.PreviousPageImageUrl Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets the URL to an image to display for the previous-page button.

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

public string PreviousPageImageUrl { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_PreviousPageImageUrl ()

/** @property */
public void set_PreviousPageImageUrl (String value)

public function get PreviousPageImageUrl () : String

public function set PreviousPageImageUrl (value : String)

Property Value

The URL to an image to display for the previous-page button. The default is an empty string (""), which indicates that the PreviousPageImageUrl is not set.

When the Mode property is set to the NextPreviousFirstLast or NextPrevious value, use the PreviousPageImageUrl property to specify the URL to an image to display for the previous-page button.


As an alternative, you can display text for the previous-page button by setting the PreviousPageText property instead of the PreviousPageImageUrl property. If the PreviousPageImageUrl and PreviousPageText properties are both set, the image is displayed with the PreviousPageText property acting as the alternate text for the image. On browsers that support ToolTips, this text is also displayed as a ToolTip for the corresponding button.

The value of this property is stored in view state.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PreviousPageImageUrl property to display an image for the previous-page button in the pager row of a GridView control.

<%@ Page language="C#" %>

    <form runat="server">
      <h3>PagerSetting Example</h3>
        <asp:gridview id="CustomerGridView"
          <pagersettings mode="NextPreviousFirstLast"
            firstpagetext="First Page" 
            lastpagetext="Last Page" 
            nextpagetext="Next Page" 
            previouspagetext="Previous Page"    
        <asp:label id="MessageLabel"
        <!-- This example uses Microsoft SQL Server and connects  -->
        <!-- to the Northwind sample database. Use an ASP.NET     -->
        <!-- expression to retrieve the connection string value   -->
        <!-- from the Web.config file.                            -->
        <asp:sqldatasource id="CustomerDataSource"
          selectcommand="Select [CustomerID], [CompanyName], [Address], [City], [PostalCode], [Country] From [Customers]"
          connectionstring="<%$ ConnectionStrings:NorthWindConnectionString%>"
