How to: Page Through Query Results

This article is relevant to entity models that utilize the deprecated Visual Studio integration of Telerik Data Access. The current documentation of the Data Access framework is available here.

This topic shows how to page the results of a query. The example gets five Product objects after skipping the first six in the query result, which is sorted by Product.UnitPrice.

To run the code in this example, you need to create a new Telerik Data Access Domain Model based on the Northwind database.

The following code is the LINQ example.

using ( EntitiesModel dbContext = new EntitiesModel() )
{
   IQueryable<Product> products = dbContext.Products.OrderBy( p => p.UnitPrice );
   products = products.Skip( 6 ).Take( 5 );
   foreach ( Product product in products )
   {
       Console.WriteLine( product.ProductName );
   }
}
Using dbContext As New EntitiesModel()
 Dim products As IQueryable(Of Product) = dbContext.Products.OrderBy(Function(p) p.UnitPrice)
 products = products.Skip(6).Take(5)
 For Each _product As Product In products
  Console.WriteLine(_product.ProductName)
 Next _product
End Using
