GridView.PageIndexChanged Event

Occurs when one of the pager buttons is clicked, but after the GridView control handles the paging operation.

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

public event EventHandler PageIndexChanged
/** @event */
public void add_PageIndexChanged (EventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_PageIndexChanged (EventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

The PageIndexChanged event is raised when one of the pager buttons is clicked, but after the GridView control handles the paging operation. This allows you to provide an event-handling method that performs a custom routine, such as a custom paging operation, whenever this event occurs.

To determine the index of the page selected by the user, use the PageIndex property of the GridView control.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PageIndexChanged event to display the page number selected by the user from the pager row.
