How to hide pager of a DataGrid Web Control

A nice feature of DataGrid web control is that in stead of showing all the records on one page it lets you set AllowPaging property to page through the records. And you can set the page size of the grid by specifying PageSize property. A lot of time the data source that grid is bound to has records less than the page size. Since you have already set AllowPaging property, the pager gets rendered at the bottom of the grid showing "1". If you want to get rid of pger if its not needed, you have 2 choices.

  • When you get the data for the grid, check the record count. If number of rows is less than or equal to page size, then set AllowPaging property to false.
    bool m_bShowPager = false;
    								
    private void GetData()
    {
    	sqlDataAdapter1.Fill(m_dsProducts);
    	// Check if we have data for more than one page.
    	m_bShowPager = (m_dsProducts.Tables[0].Rows.Count > ProdutsDataGrid.PageSize);
    	ProdutsDataGrid.AllowPaging = m_bShowPager;
    }								
    								
  • Second technique is by making use of ItemCreated event handler of data grid. When you get data for the grid, set a class variable that indicates if pager needs to be shown or not. If this value is set to false, then you can set the Visibility of pager item to false in ItemCreated event handler.
    private void OnGridItemCreated(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs e)
    {
    	if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Pager)
    	{
    		if (!this.m_bShowPager)
    		{
    			e.Item.Visible = false;
    		}
    	}
    }
