Default Ch 4 and Ch 13/15 - controls and the DataPager

Hi Imar,

The book talks about DataPagers in the later chapters.

Is there a way for the controls discussed in Ch 4 to be combined or grouped in a way that makes them appear as data to the DataPager control, allowing pages of repeating controls to be displayed?

If this is so, I'll presume it's a more complicated topic and you might not be able to explain it here, but if it is possible and can be explained, please share or point to a reference we might use to learn this.

Thanks.

Best Regards,
Alan

Hi Alan,

I am not sure I understand what you're trying to accomplish. Can you elaborate?

The DataPager is, currently, for the ListView only so I think the answer is no ;-)

Hi Imar,

Yes, I'm creating a private survey site.

It will initially be a series of radio button lists, and I just wondered if there might be a way to set the whole thing up so I could have a single page and let the Pager function page through groups of controls. Right now I'm doing a very 'newbie' series of pages with 'next' and 'prev'. It works OK, but the Pager would certainly be more elegant, especially when the surveys get bigger.

Maybe you have some advice about better ways to setup surveys.

ASP.NET seems a very powerful platform for setting up surveys and research data collection with customized pages, etc.

Thanks.

Best Regards,
Alan

www.surveymonkey.com? ;-)

You're probably best off building the pages and navigation yourself. The DataPager is really to page data in the ListView, not to navigate through pages.

This is a bit too off-topic for me to cover here, but I am sure Google has more information.

Cheers,

Imar
