Public Overridable Property PagerTemplate As ITemplate

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.ITemplate

A System.Web.UI.ITemplate that contains the custom content for the pager row. The default value is null, which indicates that this property is not set.

A pager row is displayed in a DetailsView control when the paging feature is enabled (by setting the AllowPaging property to true). The pager row contains the controls that allow the user to navigate to the different pages in the control. Instead of using the built-in pager row user interface (UI), you can define your own UI by using the PagerTemplate property. To specify a custom template for the pager row, first place <PagerTemplate> tags between the opening and closing tags of the DetailsView control. You can then list the contents of the template between the opening and closing <PagerTemplate> tags. To control the appearance of the pager row, use the PagerStyle property.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PagerTemplate property to create a custom pager row.
