Gets or sets the text that is displayed for the previous-page button.

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

public string PreviousPageText { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The text that is displayed for the previous-page button. The default is "Previous".

When the ShowPreviousPageButton property is set to true, use the PreviousPageText property to specify the text to display for the previous-page button.

When the ButtonType property is set to ButtonType.Image, the image is displayed and the PreviousPageText property acts as the alternate text for the image. On browsers that support tooltips, this text is also displayed as a tooltip.

The value of this property is stored in viewstate, and it can be saved automatically to a resource file by using a designer tool. For more information, see LocalizableAttribute and ASP.NET Globalization and Localization.

The following example shows how to use the PreviousPageText property to customize the text for the previous-page button of the pager field in a DataPager control.
