Default Problem with ObjectDataSource

Hello,

I'm using one ObjectDataSource just to enable pagination in a DataList.

The ObjectDataSource:

<asp:ObjectDataSource ID="ObjectDataSource1"
                runat="server"
                EnablePaging="true"
                SelectCountMethod="GetGuestBookCount"
                SelectMethod="GetGuestBook"
                TypeName="myGuestBook" >
        </asp:ObjectDataSource>

I have defined both methods (GetGuestBookCount & GetGuestBook), but "GetGuestBookCount" is never called, and "maximumRows" is always 0. Result? The page doesn't show any row.

What I'm doing wrong?

PS: I see that is working fine with a GridView, but I want to use the DataList instead of it. Is it possible?

Hi there,

The DataList does not support paging out of the box.

Search Google for PagedDataSource Control to find examples on paging with a DataList.
