Property Value

true if the user can page through the data; otherwise, false. The default value is true.


The EntityDataSource control supports automatically paging through the data returned by queries. The AutoPage property is a Boolean property that indicates whether paging is enabled for data that is returned by queries bound to data controls. When this property is set to true, the EntityDataSource control adds the appropriate query builder methods to the ObjectQuery<T> based on the information supplied to the EntityDataSourceView by the data-bound control.

The value of the AutoPage property determines whether the CanPage property of the EntityDataSourceView control that supports the data source is true or false.

When you define a projection with paging enabled, you must define the property by which to order the results. This means that when you set the Select property to define a projection and have AutoPage set to true, you must also set the OrderBy property to define the order or set the AutoGenerateOrderByClause property to true and add an ORDER BY parameter to the OrderByParameters collection.
