DetailsViewDesigner.SampleRowCount Property

Gets the number of sample rows for the associated control to display.

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

protected override int SampleRowCount { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of sample rows to show.

The SampleRowCount property always returns the number 2. This causes two page links to be displayed in the pager row of the DetailsView control at design time.

The following code example shows how to override the SampleRowCount property in a class inherited from the DetailsViewDesigner class to change the number of page links appearing in the pager row of the DetailsView control at design time. The example causes five page links to be displayed.

// Determines the number of page links in the pager row 
// when viewed in the designer. 
protected override int SampleRowCount
        // Render five page links in the pager row. 
        return 5;
} // SampleRowCount
