Three built-in user interface styles are available for use with the classic paging feature. The default is FirstPrevNextLast, which displays the standard VCR-style navigation buttons, and a handy dropdown menu. When screen real estate is limited, SimpleDropDown style provides full navigation power with a compact footprint. For a more modern look, the Slider style provides paging buttons as well as a direct-access slider control that provides fast access to specific pages.
With VirtualLoad™ paging you can stay one step ahead of your users. As users move through pages, this feature looks ahead to request not only the currently required page, but also the pages likely to be needed next. Previously displayed data is retained, allowing pages of data to be presented with fewer trips to the server. VirtualLoad™ is now enhanced to work seamlessly with grouped rows in Client Binding mode.
