Aaron thanks for your answer. I am still without understanding this plugging. I can display the results on internet explorer (the links with the number of pages)but not on firefox. Also i don't understand how to send the variable 'page' where do i get that from?
Never mind… it displays the links on firefox as well but the links dont work correctly
I am reading the documentation on the coldbox site AGAIN to try to understand the Paging plugin.
This is what I am doing:
Everything starts when the user submits a form with the search criteria (date, market, dealer etc).
The form action calls my handler "exampleHandler.eventGetValues’.
In my handler a i am calling:
rc.pageBoundaries = getMyPlugin(
Then I am adding the “rowfrom and the rowTo” to my “searchCriteria” structure
searchcriteria.rowFrom = rc.pageBoundaries.startRow;
searchcriteria.rowTo = rc.pageBoundaries.startRow + getMyPlugin(“Paging”).getPagingMaxRows(); ( is this ok? )
Now I call my service and get the query results:
I have another function that gives me the total of entries in this query:
rc.entriesTotal = qryTotal.total;
Now in my view:
(How do I get the page variable??? I dont understand)
I am able to see the links but when I click on them I am getting two errors:
The value ‘’ cannot be converted to a number. because the variable page doesn’t exists.
My form values are gone so I can not get the search criteria values to send them to my exampleService…
hope this is clear enough… Please help!
@page@ needs to be passed in the link, it right there in the documentation.
I have made a better one, and will release it as soon as I clean it up some.
Ok as promised a better version, usage is the same as the one Luis wrote, only it now supports adjacent pages.<!-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Great Andrew!!!. Thanks for your help … will take a look at your version, seems pretty good…
In my search for finding a way to paginate I found another good plugin. Here is the link:
Maybe someone will be interested in it. It has great documentation and real examples. Althoug is not made for coldbox there is a small modification that needs to be added. A paramenter called event. This paramenter will add the name of the event to the “page links” that are generated. It also has several styles… Thanks again for all your help
Wish I had found that earlier, that is exactly what I rewrote this to do.
