View Full Version : Round Up Integer

12-14-2006, 11:42 AM
I am creating a function which will display the page number for a post in a thread on my forum. To calculate the page number I divide the total posts by the page size.

Posts in Thread: 12
Page Size: 10
Page Number: 12/10 = 1.2

However when rounded off 1.2 becomes 1, whereas I need it to always round up. Is there a way of doing this?

Math.Ceiling what you were looking for?

Hello Curt and nikkiH,

Curt if you are using the PagedDataSource Class, you can use the CurrentPageIndex Property to get an output something like:

Page 2 of 8

lblPageNumber.Text = "Page " & (PagedData.CurrentPageIndex + 1) & " of " & PagedData.PageCount

In the above sample, PagedData is the instance of the PagedDataSource Class.

This is for links to posts such as the one at the bottom of my homepage:


Instead of the thread links going to the first post I need to find a way of getting the page number. I have all the code done for it, I just need to find a way of rounding up.

nikkiH solution will do the job:

Math.Ceiling(2.2) = 3
Math.Ceiling(2.7) = 3
Math.Ceiling(2.0) = 2
