PagerSettings Property

FormView.PagerSettings Property

Gets a reference to the PagerSettings object that allows you to set the properties of the pager buttons in a FormView control.

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

[PersistenceModeAttribute(PersistenceMode.InnerProperty)]
public virtual PagerSettings PagerSettings { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.WebControls.PagerSettings
A reference to the PagerSettings that allows you to set the properties of the pager buttons in a FormView control.

Use the PagerSettings property to control the settings of the pager row in a FormView control. The pager row is displayed when the paging feature is enabled (when the AllowPaging property is set to true), and contains the controls that allow the user to navigate to the different records in the control. This property is read-only; however, you can set the properties of the PagerSettings object it returns. The properties can be set declaratively in the form Property-Subproperty, where Subproperty is a property of the PagerSettings object (for example, PagerSettings-Mode). The properties can also be set programmatically in the form Property.Subproperty (for example, PagerSettings.Mode). Common settings usually include the pager row's display mode and custom text or images for the navigation controls.

The following example demonstrates how to use the PagerSettings property to specify the properties of the pager row.
