Bootstrap 3 Dynamic Paging Generator Manual

July 6, 2016

Bootstrap 3 Dynamic Paging Reference

In this article, you'll find detailed information about every option, included in the Bootstrap 3 Dynamic Paging Generator extension. The overview features everything you need to know about using paged server action and repeat region as paging sources, as well as how to customize the appearance of the paging to fit your site design.

Features

Paging Source - Paged Server Action

In order to use a repeat region as paging source, you need to have HTML5 Data Bindings Extended Repeater extension installed in your Dreamweaver.

Data source

If you have a large list of content, which needs to be separated into a vary large number of pages, the best way is to use paged server action as a source. It works on the server side and is much faster than a repeat region, which works on the client side. Just make your database connection in DMXzone Server Connect, add a paged query and you're good to go.

Paging size

Thanks to the great Bootstrap style, you can choose between three different sizes for your paging - default, large and small.

PageLink separator

To avoid large list of page numbers one after another, you can use a separator. Simply add the character(s) that will be used to separate the outer links from the adjacent links.

Number of outer links

Here, you can enter the number of page links to display at the start and end of the range.

Number of adjacent links

In this field, you can enter the number of adjacent links to be displayed.

Previous/Next labels

You can use any character or text as previous/next label. The extension is smart enough to speak any language.

First/Last labels

Like in the previous option, here you can add your labels for first and next. They can be any character or text in any language.

Paging source - Repeat Region

Repeat region

Use state management as global option that apply to both server & client side paging, so you can also do client side paging and remember the active page in the URL. For the active page to be remembered, you need to check the "use state management" option as well.

Paging options

Like with paged server action as a paging source, you have the very same options if you use a repeat region as a source. You can customize the paging size, separator, previous/next labels and also first/last labels.

Use State Management

Page Parameter

State management can be applied to both paging sources and requires HTML5 Data Bindings State Management extension. This way, the active page will be remembered. Just choose the URL parameter name to use as offset. This one must be defined in HTML5 Data Bindings first.
