DataSourceSelectArguments.StartRowIndex Property


Gets or sets a value that represents the starting position the data source control should use when retrieving data rows during a data retrieval operation.

 property int StartRowIndex { int get(); void set(int value); };
public int StartRowIndex { get; set; }
member this.StartRowIndex : int with get, set
Public Property StartRowIndex As Integer

Property Value

The starting row position from which a data source control retrieves data. The default value is 0, which indicates that the starting position is the beginning of the result set.


The StartRowIndex property supports paging scenarios. Data-bound controls check a data source view's CanPage property at run time, and add a DataSourceCapabilities.Page capability using the AddSupportedCapabilities(DataSourceCapabilities) method if the view supports paging. If the data-bound control fails to add the capability, and the paging properties are set on a DataSourceSelectArguments object passed to the data source view during a data retrieval operation, an InvalidOperationException exception might be thrown.

As a separate operation, the data-bound control can request a subset of data from a data source control by setting the StartRowIndex and MaximumRows properties on the DataSourceSelectArguments object passed to the DataSourceView.Select(DataSourceSelectArguments, DataSourceViewSelectCallback) method.
