Paging

Paging is a very important query in DataManager that is used to display only some records from the large data source.

Default

The paging index and the paging size parameters of the paging query determines the number of records to be retrieved from the data source of the DataManager.

Refer to the following code example for the paging options.

  • html
  • <asp:Content runat="server" ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent">
    
        <ej:DataManager ID="FlatData" runat="server" URL="http://mvc.syncfusion.com/Services/Northwnd.svc/Orders"/>
        <ej:Grid ID="OrdersGrid" runat="server"  DataManagerID="FlatData"
            Query = "ej.Query()
                    .select('OrderID', 'CustomerID', 'EmployeeID', 'Freight', 'ShipCity')
                    .page(5,5)">
            <Columns>
                <ej:Column Field="OrderID" HeaderText="Order ID" IsPrimaryKey="True" TextAlign="Right" Width="75" />
                <ej:Column Field="CustomerID" HeaderText="Customer ID" Width="75" />
                <ej:Column Field="EmployeeID" HeaderText="EmployeeID" Width="75" />
                <ej:Column Field="ShipCity" HeaderText="Ship City" Width="75" />
                <ej:Column Field="Freight" HeaderText="Freight" Width="75" />
            </Columns>
        </ej:Grid>
    
    </asp:Content>

    Result for the above code example is illustrated as follows.

    Dynamic Paging

    The paging operation can be dynamically performed by using the DataManager. With the help of an external button click event, the required page records can be obtained and processed accordingly. The following code example illustrates the dynamic paging.

  • html
  • <asp:Content runat="server" ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent">
    
        <ej:DataManager ID="FlatData" runat="server" URL="http://mvc.syncfusion.com/Services/Northwnd.svc/Orders/" CrossDomain="true"/>
        <ej:Grid ID="OrdersGrid" runat="server"  DataManagerID="FlatData" 
            Query ="new ej.Query().select(['OrderID', 'CustomerID', 'EmployeeID', 'ShipCity', 'Freight']).page(1,3)">
            <Columns>
                <ej:Column Field="OrderID" HeaderText="Order ID" IsPrimaryKey="True" TextAlign="Right" Width="75" />
                <ej:Column Field="CustomerID" HeaderText="Customer ID" Width="75" />
                <ej:Column Field="EmployeeID" HeaderText="Employee ID" Width="75" />
                <ej:Column Field="ShipCity" HeaderText="Ship City" Width="75" />
                <ej:Column Field="Freight" HeaderText="Freight" Width="75" />
            </Columns>
        </ej:Grid>
    
        pageIndex: <input id="pageIndex" type="text" placeholder="page index" />
    
        pageSize:  <input id="pageSize" type="text" placeholder="page size" />
    
        <ej:Button runat="server" Type="Button" Text="Execute" ClientSideOnClick="onClick" ID="submit"></ej:Button>
    
    </asp:Content>
    
    <asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="ScriptSection" runat="server">
    
    <script type="text/javascript" class="jsScript">
    
        function onClick(e)
        {
            var from = parseInt($("#pageIndex").val());
            var to = parseInt($("#pageSize").val());
            var obj = $("#MainContent_OrdersGrid").ejGrid("instance")
            tempQuery = new ej.Query();
            tempQuery.page(from, to);
            var dm = window.FlatData.executeQuery(tempQuery).done(function (e1) {
                obj.dataSource(e1.result);
            })
        }
    
    </script>
    
     </asp:Content>
