Paging in DataList, 17 Oct 2003, Jesudas Chinnathampi (Das) (rss)
Today, we will learn how we can add the paging feature for the datalist. It should be noted that, like DataGrid, DataList does not support inbuilt paging mechanism. The essence of this article is how we make use of the object SqlDataAdapter. This object has a method called, Fill which is used to add or refresh the rows in a DataSet. Actually the method Fill is overloaded. We will be mainly concentrating the one which takes four arguments. The four arguments are DataSet, startRecord, maxRecords and the TableName. Second and third arguments are integer. Where as the TableName is the table name. So, if we say objDV.Fill(objDS, 0, 5, "sales"). The dataset will be filled with 5 records and the starting position will be from the first record. First, we are bringing the entire records from the table sales, and then we filter those with the help of startRecord and maxRecords. For our example, we will consider the table, Sales from the pubs database (SQL Server 2000).
