Paging and sorting data in a GridView that comes from a SqlDataSource is a breeze with ASP.NET 2.0. As in the demos before, start by adding a SqlDataSource that accesses the desired data. Next, add a GridView. The GridView’s Smart Tag contains two checkboxes: Enable Paging and Enable Sorting. To turn on sorting and/or paging, simply check the appropriate checkboxes (see Figure 21). It’s that simple!
