FirstPageText Property

PagerSettings.FirstPageText Property

 

Gets or sets the text to display for the first-page button.

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

public string FirstPageText { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The text to display for the first-page button. The default is "&lt;&lt;", which renders as "<<".

When the Mode property is set to the NextPreviousFirstLast or NumericFirstLast value, use the FirstPageText property to specify the text to display for the first-page button.

System_CAPS_noteNote

As an alternative, you can display an image for the first-page button by setting the FirstPageImageUrl property instead of the FirstPageText property. If the FirstPageImageUrl and FirstPageText properties are both set, the image is displayed with the FirstPageText property acting as the alternate text for the image. On browsers that support ToolTips, this text is also displayed as a ToolTip for the corresponding button.

The value of this property is stored in view state.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the FirstPageText property to customize the text that is displayed for the first-page button of the pager row in a GridView control.
