Could you shed a light how the basic pager, e.g.  NextPrevAndNumeric, decides what data display left-aligned and what data right-aligned.

In all your descriptions for PagerTextFormat there is a pipe symbol, e.g.
Change page: {4} | Displaying page {0} of {1}, items {2} to {3} of {5}.

which I thought should control it. But it seems there is another logic.

Hi Michael,

Please take a look at the following example:

RadGrid Paging

Note how the pager content is wrapper inside two <div>s:

div.PagerLeft_Skin   and   div.PagerRight_Skin

These two <div>s have float styles in the skin, which determine their positioning. You can override this positioning, according to your preference.

Let us know if you need more information.


Sincerely yours,

Thanks, I realized that the pages info is displayed in to <div>s.
My question was how to control what data defined in PagerTextFormat go to the left and right <div>? Playing with different formats I found out that the divider is {4}. Is this correct?
 
Another question: if the PagerTextFormat = "Change page: {4} | Displaying page {0} of {1}, items {2} to {3} of {5}." the symbol "|" disappears.
If PagerTextFormat = "Displaying page {0} of {1}, items {2} to {3} of {5} | Change page: {4}." it displays "|". Is there any specific purpose of the symbol "|" in PagerTextFormat ?

If there is any logic behind I would appreciate if you add it into the documentation.

Hello Michael,

You are on the right track with the {4} - it is the last thing in the pager item, which is left-aligned. Everything coming after {4} is placed in the right <div>.

As for the "|" divider - it's just text, doesn't have any special functions. While I tested with PagerTextFormat, it never disappeared.

Thanks for the explanation.

I'd like to suggest a few things:
1. Describe it in the documentation for PagerTextFormat.
2. Add a delimiter symbol(s) which will be treated as a divider for left/center/right parts. In some scenarios I really wished to have something in the center <div>.

Hi miksh,

Thank you for the suggestion -  I will forward them to our documentation team to be considered for the next versions of the help. Additionally, if you would like to have more flexible/customizable grid pager, consider defining your own pager template as illustrated in this online demo:
