    My Datapager is using:

    <telerik:RadDataPagerButtonField FieldType="FirstPrev" />
    <telerik:RadDataPagerButtonField FieldType="Numeric" PageButtonCount="5" />
    <telerik:RadDataPagerButtonField FieldType="NextLast" />

    Instead of arrows, how can I show them as text?
    I wish to change from < 1,2,3,4,5 > to PREV 1,2,3,4,5 NEXT

    By default the buttons in the RadDataPager are using images as background. You can override that and customize the buttons to display text instead.

    The following code snippet outlines the approach for changing the prev button. The code is placed in the FieldCreated event handler of the RadDataPager.

    protected void RadDataPager1_FieldCreated(object sender, RadDataPagerFieldCreatedEventArgs e)
        if (e.Item is RadDataPagerFieldItem)
            RadDataPagerFieldItem item = e.Item as RadDataPagerFieldItem;
            Button prevButton = item.FindControl("PrevButton") as Button;
            if (prevButton != null)
                prevButton.Text = "Prev";
                prevButton.CssClass = "";
