Property Value


true if server-side paging is enabled; otherwise, false.

ASP.NET version 2.0 data-bound controls (such as GridView, DetailsView, and FormView) provide automatic paging functionality through server-side paging. When using an ASP.NET 2.0 data-bound control, set this property to true.


Server-side paging and custom paging are mutually exclusive. If you set to true, be sure that is set to false.
