### How to insert page number in a citation ?

Hi, I'm a LyX beginner, very impressed by LateX/Lyx I 'm currently wrinting a document with Bibtext citations, everything is working fine, but I can't find a solution to include page numbers in the citations (exemple [5, page 435] instead of just [5] ). Is-it possible ?
Thanks!

I'm not familiar with LyX, but there should be a way to edit the \cite command and add an optional argument.
`\cite[p. 435]{refkey}`

Best regards and welcome to the board

Thanks for the fast answer ! Another question then : how to insert this optional argument in LyX ?
I can display the Latex source in Lyx, but cannot edit it directly

Ok I found it finally No need to edit directly the latex code, just right clik on the citation and type some text in the 'text after' area. Thanks a lot for your help !
