PageCountMode Enumeration

Visual Studio 2010

Represents values that control whether to calculate the actual page count or use an estimate.

Namespace: Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms
Assembly: Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms (in microsoft.reportviewer.webforms.dll)

public enum class PageCountMode
public enum PageCountMode
public enum PageCountMode

 Member nameDescription
ActualCalculate the actual page count for the report.  
EstimateProvide an estimate of the page count for the report instead of calculating the actual page count. 

Pagination in a processed report occurs when the report is rendered. Until the report is rendered, the total page count is unknown.

Rendering a report using the Estimate mode can help improve the performance of report rendering. You can change the PageCountMode property of ReportViewer to control the page count mode it uses when rendering a report in the report area. To specify the page count mode when you render a report programmatically, use the Render method. You can then use the GetTotalPages method to retrieve the total number of pages in the rendered report.


Rendering in Estimate mode can be more performant than Actual mode.
