FormViewDesigner.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.

The SampleRowCount always returns 2. This causes two page links to be displayed in the pager row of the FormView control at design time, if the PagerSettings mode is numeric.

The following code example shows how to override the SampleRowCount property in a class that is inherited from the FormViewDesigner class to change the number of page links appearing in the pager row of the FormView control at design time. The example causes four page links to display.

// Determines the number of design-time links in the pager row.
protected override int SampleRowCount
        // Render four links in the pager row.
        return 4;
} // SampleRowCount
