    Paging in JQuery TreeGrid widget settings

    The paging in TreeGrid can be customized by using the pageSettings property.
    The number of records to be displayed per page can be limited by using the pageSize property.
    The number of root nodes or the 0th level records to be displayed per page can be limited by setting the pageSizeMode property as Root.

    The pageCount property is used to display the page number to be displayed in the pager.
    The currentPage property is used to set the active page to displayed initially.
