PagerSettings.NextPageText Property

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

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

public string NextPageText { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_NextPageText ()

/** @property */
public void set_NextPageText (String value)

public function get NextPageText () : String

public function set NextPageText (value : String)

Not applicable.

Property Value

The text to display for the next-page button. The default is ">", which renders as ">".

When the Mode property is set to the NumericFirstLast or NextPrevious value, use the NextPageText property to specify the text to display for the next-page button.


As an alternative, you can display an image for the next-page button by setting the NextPageImageUrl property instead of the NextPageText property. If the NextPageImageUrl and NextPageText properties are both set, the image is displayed with the NextPageText 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 NextPageText property to customize the text that is displayed for the next-page button of the pager row in a GridView control.
