Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use the PageCount property of the Form control. This code example is part of a larger example for the ControlToPaginate property.

void Form_Paginated(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    // Set the background color based on 
    // the number of pages
    if (ActiveForm.PageCount > 1)
        ActiveForm.BackColor = Color.LightBlue;
    else
        ActiveForm.BackColor = Color.LightGray;

    // Check to see if the Footer template has been chosen
    if (DevSpec.HasTemplates)
    {   
        System.Web.UI.MobileControls.Label lbl = null;
        
        // Get the Footer panel
        System.Web.UI.MobileControls.Panel pan = Form1.Footer;

        // Get the Label from the panel
        lbl = (System.Web.UI.MobileControls.Label)pan.FindControl("lblCount");
        // Set the text in the Label
        lbl.Text = "Page #" + Form1.CurrentPage.ToString();
    }
}
Private Sub Form_Paginated(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As EventArgs)
    
    ' Set the background color based on 
    ' the number of pages
    If ActiveForm.PageCount > 1 Then
        ActiveForm.BackColor = Color.LightBlue
    Else
        ActiveForm.BackColor = Color.LightGray
    End If
    
    ' Check to see if the Footer template has been chosen
    If DevSpec.HasTemplates Then
        Dim lbl As System.Web.UI.MobileControls.Label
        
        ' Get the Footer panel
        Dim pan As System.Web.UI.MobileControls.Panel = Form1.Footer

        ' Get the Label from the panel
        lbl = CType(pan.FindControl("lblCount"), System.Web.UI.MobileControls.Label)
        ' Set the text in the Label
        lbl.Text = "Page #" + Form1.CurrentPage.ToString()
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

The Form control exposes the PageCount property and the CurrentPage property, which provide information about how the current form is paginated. The PageCount property also helps provide navigation capability to another page. For example, when rendering on a richer device, a search results form might include device-specific UI elements that allow the user to browse to a page of results by number rather than by link navigation.

Note

This value is available after the Paginated event has occurred. To get the PageCount property, you can handle the Paginated event of the form.
