DataPager

The DataPager control can ensure paging for the following CMSControls:

You do not need to use the DataPager separately, it is built into the above controls. You can enable or disable the DataPager though the EnablePaging property.

Note: If possible, it is recommended to use the newer UniPager control instead.

Getting started

The following is a step-by-step tutorial that shows how to use the DataPager control with a CMSRepeater control that displays all pages (menu items) in the system:

  1. Create a new Web form somewhere in your web project.
  2. Drag the CMSRepeater control from the toolbox onto the form.
  3. Set the following properties for the CMSRepeater:

    • Path: /%
    • ClassNames: cms.menuitem
    • EnablePaging: True

    This tells the CMSRepeater which page types to read and enables the DataPager.



  4. Add the code marked by the CMSRepeater templates comments between the <cms:CMSRepeater> tags. The overall code of the CMSRepeater control should look like this:

    <cms:CMSRepeater ID="CMSRepeater1" runat="server" Path="/%" ClassNames="cms.menuitem" EnablePaging="true" >
    
    	<%-- CMSRepeater templates ---------------------------------------------------------- --%>                
    
    		<ItemTemplate>
    		   <%# HTMLHelper.HTMLEncode( Convert.ToString(Eval("NodeAliasPath"))) %>
    		</ItemTemplate>
    		<AlternatingItemTemplate>
    		   <font color="#999999">
    				<%# HTMLHelper.HTMLEncode( Convert.ToString(Eval("NodeAliasPath"))) %>    
    		   </font>
    		</AlternatingItemTemplate>
    		<SeparatorTemplate>
    		   <br />
    		</SeparatorTemplate>
    
    	<%-- CMSRepeater templates ---------------------------------------------------------- --%>
    
    </cms:CMSRepeater>

    This sets the templates used by the CMSRepeater to display the pages (menu items). The control dynamically replaces the <%#  ... %> tags with values of the currently displayed record. This is then repeated for every record in the data source.



  5. Save the web form.
  6. Right-click the web form in the Solution explorer and select View in Browser.

The control displays a pager under the list:
