Remarks

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

Note

Because the FormView control displays only one record at a time, this value corresponds to the total number of pages required to display every record in the data source. This value is not accurate until after data-binding occurs.

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