paging with gridview


Hi

I am trying to bind a custom datasource to a gridview whilst paging is
enabled. What is missing in this code to make the paging + binding work?

thanks

Marc,

When you bind the GridView to a datasource that is not a DataSourceControl
(something other than SqlDataSource, ObjectDataSource, etc.) then you lose
some of the automatic functionality like paging and sorting.

You can bind the GridView to a class that implements ICollection but then
you'll have to handle some of the plumbing yourself.

Try modifying your PageIndexChanging handler to:

    Protected Sub GridView2_PageIndexChanging(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal
e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewPageEventArgs) Handles
GridView2.PageIndexChanging
        Me.GridView2.PageIndex = e.NewPageIndex
        GridView2.DataSource = bron()
        GridView2.DataBind()        
    End Sub

If handling the events manually is a problem then you might take a look at
using an ObjectDataSource to expose your collection.

This one has some good details about handling sorting

hope this helps,

thanks Jason!

No problem, glad to help.
