Remarks

When the Mode property is set to the NextPreviousFirstLast or NextPrevious value, use the PreviousPageText property to specify the text to display for the previous-page button.

Note

As an alternative, you can display an image for the previous-page button by setting the PreviousPageImageUrl property instead of the PreviousPageText property. If the PreviousPageImageUrl and PreviousPageText properties are both set, the image is displayed with the PreviousPageText property acting as the alternate text for the image. On browsers that support ToolTips, this text is also displayed as a ToolTip for the corresponding button.

The value of this property is stored in view state.
