NextPreviousPagerField Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the NextPreviousPagerField class.

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

public NextPreviousPagerField()

Use the NextPreviousPagerField constructor to initialize a new instance of the NextPreviousPagerField class. This constructor is typically used when you are adding fields to a dynamically created DataPager control.

To add a NextPreviousPagerField object dynamically to a DataPager control, create a new NextPreviousPagerField object, set its properties, and then add it to the field collection for the DataPager control.

The following example shows how to use the constructor to dynamically add a NextPreviousPagerField object to a DataPager control.

<script runat="server">

  void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)

    // Dynamically generated field pagers need to be created only  
    // the first time the page is loaded. 

    if (!IsPostBack)
      // Create a NextPreviousPagerField object to display 
      // the buttons to navigate.
      NextPreviousPagerField pagerField = new NextPreviousPagerField();
      pagerField.ShowFirstPageButton = true;
      pagerField.ShowLastPageButton = true;
      pagerField.ButtonType = ButtonType.Button;

      // Add the pager field to the Fields collection of the 
      // DataPager control.
