DataGrid.CurrentPageIndex Property

Gets or sets the index of the currently displayed page.

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

public int CurrentPageIndex { get; set; }
/** @property */
public int get_CurrentPageIndex ()

/** @property */
public void set_CurrentPageIndex (int value)

public function get CurrentPageIndex () : int

public function set CurrentPageIndex (value : int)

Not applicable.

Property Value

The zero-based index of the page currently displayed.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The specified page index is a negative value.

Use this property to determine the currently displayed page in the DataGrid control when paging is enabled. This property is also used to programmatically control which page is displayed.

You can also hide the built in paging controls and create custom controls. To display a specific page, set this property to the page index you want to display and then rebind the data to the DataGrid control.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the CurrentPageIndex property to programmatically control the page to display in the DataGrid control.
