In MySQL, you would need to supply the LIMIT keyword in order to get a specific set of rows. With GridView’s paging feature enabled, everything is done for you. Neat huh. Took me like a day in getting this one to work though because I had problems with the update and delete function. Since I am using MySQL, turns out when you do parameters in your query commands, the @ sign does not work because it is only for MS SQL. You would have to change the @ to ?.
