Paging with Repeater control in ASP.NET.


Repeater and DataList controls offer a quick and flexible means of displaying data on a ASPX page. But they offer no paging functionality built in. The DataGrid control has in-built paging but its structure is more rigid. There are several articles on various ASP.NET Resource Sites that offer solutions, but I'm going to show you how to use the PagedDataSource class.

The PagedDataSource class encapsulates the properties of the DataGrid control that allow it to perform paging. But we can use the class with Repeater and DataList controls to perform paging in much the same way as a DataGrid.

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
        ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    'Put user code to initialize the page here
    Dim myConnection As New _
    Dim myDA As New SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter("Select * from dtsDefect", _
    myDA.Fill(ds, "t1")
    pageds.DataSource = ds.Tables("t1").DefaultView
    pageds.AllowPaging = True
    pageds.PageSize = 4
    Dim curpage As Integer

    If Not IsNothing(Request.QueryString("Page")) Then
        curpage = Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString("Page"))
        curpage = 1
    End If

    pageds.CurrentPageIndex = curpage - 1
    lblCurrpage.Text = "Page: " + curpage.ToString()

    If Not pageds.IsFirstPage Then
        lnkPrev.NavigateUrl = Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath + _
                                       "?Page=" + CStr(curpage - 1)
    End If

    If Not pageds.IsLastPage Then
        lnkNext.NavigateUrl = Request.CurrentExecutionFilePath + _
                                       "?Page=" + CStr(curpage + 1)
    End If

    Repeater1.DataSource = pageds
End Sub
