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

The PageIndexChanged event is raised when one of the pager buttons is clicked, but after the GridView control handles the paging operation. This enables 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 example demonstrates how to use the PageIndexChanged event to display the page number selected by the user from the pager row.

  {
    if (!IsPostBack)
    {
      // Call a helper method to display the current page number 
      // when the page is first loaded.
      DisplayCurrentPage();
    }
  }

  void CustomersGridView_PageIndexChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
    // Call a helper method to display the current page number 
    // when the user navigates to a different page.
    DisplayCurrentPage();
  }

  void DisplayCurrentPage()
  {
    // Calculate the current page number.
    int currentPage = CustomersGridView.PageIndex + 1;

    // Display the current page number. 
    Message.Text = "Page " + currentPage.ToString() + " of " + 
      CustomersGridView.PageCount.ToString() + ".";
  }
