Remarks

When the paging feature is enabled (by setting the AllowPaging property to true), use the DataItemCount property to determine the total number of records in the underlying data source.

Note

Because the DetailsView control displays only one record at a time, this value also corresponds to the total number of pages required to display every record in the data source.

To determine the index of the current record from the underlying data source, use the DataItemIndex property.
