Hiding the DataGrid the first time the page loads

Hiding the DataGrid the first time the page loads

When the search page first loads, you can hide the DataGrid that will be used to display the search results.

To hide the DataGrid the first time the page loads:

  1. Open the search page in Code view (View > Code).
  2. Immediately after the Register directive at the top of the page, enter the following code block if the page language is Visual Basic:
    <script runat="server">
    Sub Page_Load()
       If Not IsPostBack Then 
          dgName.Visible = false
          dgName.Visible = true
       End If
    End Sub

    where dgName is the ID of your DataGrid.

    If the page language is C#, enter the following code:

    <script runat="server">
    void Page_Load() {
       if (!IsPostBack) { 
          dgName.Visible = false;
       } else {
          dgName.Visible = true;
  3. Save the page.
