What I understand, When you debug you get Object reference not set to an instance of an object at the data pager control this.ReassessmentSelectorDataPager.DataBind();

This issue occurs if you tried at your code to set data pager ReassessmentSelectorDataPager programmatically to null like this DataPager ReassessmentSelectorDataPager = null; so make sure that it's not set to null at any line in your code.

Also , no need to bind data pager control like this this.ReassessmentSelectorDataPager.DataBind(); it's related to a specific list view that should be defined at PagedControlID property at asp:DataPager tag, so you need to set the data source of this listview then bind it like this

 ListView1.DataSource = fucctionthat will retrive data to list view();
  • thanks a lot for your help, actually I added in listview pagepropertieschanging and this code ' protected void ReassessmentSelectorListView_PagePropertiesChanging(object sender, PagePropertiesChangingEventArgs e) { try { this.ReassessmentSelectorDataPager.SetPageProperties(e.StartRowIndex, e.MaximumRows, false); } catch (Exception ex) { LoggingUtilities.LogToDatabase(LOG_TYPE.ERROR, ex.Message, ex.ToString(), this.currentWeb.Url, this.currentWeb.CurrentUser.LoginName); } }'
