    Say I have several sets of date range fields with a textbox for each of the From and To fields.  For each set of From/To textboxes there would be a collection of date ranges.  So each pager would cycle through a range of values, and those values would be displayed in the corresponding textbox.

    Something like this
    Manager Type 1 From: _______   To: ________    <   >
    Manager Type 2 From: _______   To: ________    <   >   
    Manager Type 3 From: _______   To: ________    <   >
    Manager Type 4 From: _______   To: ________    <   >

    In my view, this wont really be a good fit for using a pager, at least not in the usual way.  Seems like it would be better to just roll the code yourself with buttons to handle the data navigation.  You could fire off ajax requests from buttons and handle the data navigation & updates etc.

    If anyone can suggest a clever way of using the pager in this scenario, id like to hear it.

    Indeed implementing your own data-fetching logic would be preferable in this case. However if you have any specific queries regarding the RadDataPager control we will gladly answer them.
