Most of the times, you don't need to paginate on the client side: if you have an enough small set of records to be displayed, I would suggest you to choose a scrollable <div/>.

Server-side web pagination is really needed when you have to display hundreds of records. You may fetch results from the DB using an offset and loading a single page for each HTTP request.
If your resultset is small it's possible to load it fully. Sometime I saw code loading the full resultset in session; and on each page-switch the browser refreshes displaying a different subset/page. There are many disadvantages of a server-side pagination like this:

  • You have to use the HTTP Session (and remember to clean up when it's nomore needed).
  • You have to reload the page on every page switch.
  • You cannot go forward and backward to check previous data without loosing the view on current resultset.
  • You have to write code for the server side actions handling all the page-switch work.

As I said before, everything would be solved using a table inside scrollable div but, in my current web application "GUI designers" like to persecute the users having them clicking and clicking even for few records. As in my case, I have an "editable table" (an html form) that's also paginated, in wich validation of each record depends on other records...
At least I wanted to avoid reloading the page on every page switch, and also avoid using HTTP Session when not strictly necessary. So I end up writing a JavaScript paginator object that handles the job of paginating any html table rendering also a simple pagination bar.

Here's a live sample:

# field

To use my javascript you need to:

  1. include the javascript using <script src="pager.js"> in your page header;
  2. include a small css to skin the page navigation-bar (i.e. for emphasizing the selected page using bold and underline style);
  3. define an ID on the table you want to scroll. i.e. <table id="results"> ;
  4. place an empty <div/> in the place you want to display the navigation bar. i.e. <div id="pageNavPosition"> ;
  5. include an initialization script at the bottom of your page like this:
    <script type="text/javascript"><!--
        var pager = new Pager('results', 3); 
        pager.showPageNav('pager', 'pageNavPosition'); 
    Where 'results' is the id of the table (see step #3), 3 is the number of records per page, 'pager' is the name of the variable (in red... that's ugly I agree...), and pageNavPosition is the ID of the DIV inside of which the pagination bar will be placed. The showPage(1) indicates that, when loading the page, the 1st one should be displayed.
That's all. If you want to download a demo (html+javascript files), you can click here: JavaScript Table Paginator Demo.

If you have a huge table, maybe it will be displayed fully before the javascript at the bottom will be executed. To avoid this, you can set the table as hidden by default using css style, and make it visibile using JavaScript after the pager.showPage() call.

    great idea to use directly the table rows style
    i will probably steal yr snippet ;)

  2. 2 Luigi

    It seems also suitable for implementing forms in a whizards fashion: you can put every page of the whizard in a table row, and add the submit button only on the last page.

    how can we hide Next>> link in last page and

  4. 4 Luigi

    put an Id attribute on next>> span (in showPageNav function) and apply style.display = ‘none’ when this.currentPage == this.pages (in showPage function)

    should not be difficult:

        this.showPage = function(pageNumber) {
        	if (! this.inited) {
        		alert("not inited");
            var oldPageAnchor = document.getElementById('pg'+this.currentPage);
            oldPageAnchor.className = 'pg-normal';
            this.currentPage = pageNumber;
            var newPageAnchor = document.getElementById('pg'+this.currentPage);
            newPageAnchor.className = 'pg-selected';
            var from = (pageNumber - 1) * itemsPerPage + 1;
            var to = from + itemsPerPage - 1;
            this.showRecords(from, to);
            var pgNext = document.getElementById('pgNext');
            var pgPrev = document.getElementById('pgPrev');
            if (this.currentPage == this.pages) 
       = 'none';
       = '';
    	if (this.currentPage == 1) 
       = 'none';
       = '';
        this.showPageNav = function(pagerName, positionId) {
        	if (! this.inited) {
        		alert("not inited");
        	var element = document.getElementById(positionId);
        	var pagerHtml = '<span id="pgPrev" onclick="' + pagerName + '.prev();" class="pg-normal"> &#171 Prev </span> | ';
            for (var page = 1; page <= this.pages; page++) 
                pagerHtml += '<span id="pg' + page + '" class="pg-normal" onclick="' + pagerName + '.showPage(' + page + ');">' + page + '</span> | ';
            pagerHtml += '<span id="pgNext" onclick="'+pagerName+'.next();" class="pg-normal"> Next »</span>';            
            element.innerHTML = pagerHtml;

    Can anybody help me….. Can we develop a pagination using this code like google. Please if you guys have any code, please forward me to my mail-id.

  6. 6 Vivekanand

    Hi Lascia,

    This pagination is Cool. But I have a request for you Lascia. Can I made this pagination like the google one.

    while doing any search in google it will display only 10 first, then it will starts scrolling when we click on the next button. once we have reached 10 then till take you to 11, 12, etc….

    And I have used your Script on Button Click. On clicking a Button one div loads all the stuff and pagination is applied. Its fine for the first attempt. That div has a closing facilty also. Once I close that Div and Start Clicking on the Button it is firing and error like ‘null’ is not an object

    I am new to Javascript. Please help me out…..

    Could you please help me in this regard.

    Please …. Please……

    Thanks in Advance….

    Thanx for Good stuff.

    Can you help me to make this type of pagination, as a Generic Component Pagination.
    That is used for any page in our project.

    How to make like that. Plz help me. I have to use JS & CSS.

    waiting for ur reply

  8. 8 David Levin

    Great Script! At what point in terms of records would you recommend moving to server-side pagination? Is 100 records worth making the switch? Is 1000?

    Also, I agree with Vivekanand that putting a “…” in the next N records interface might make things easier if there are more than 10 pages.

    Thanks again.

    Please use the following code to hide the display of “Next” Button on last page and “prev” button on first page
    Please put the following code in showPage() function

    var pgNext = document.getElementById(’pgNext’);
    var pgPrev = document.getElementById(’pgPrev’);
    if (pageNumber == this.pages) = ‘none’;
    else = ‘true’;
    if (pageNumber == 1) = ‘none’;

    but it was getting javascript error .so just update from ‘true’ to ‘block’
    the snippet is updated below

    var pgNext = document.getElementById(‘pgNext’);
    var pgPrev = document.getElementById(‘pgPrev’);

    if (pageNumber == this.pages) = ‘none';
    else = ‘block';
    if (pageNumber == 1) = ‘none';
    else = ‘block';

  20. 20 Luigi

    Thankyou Tajudeen. A patch for the Abhishek Khandelwal change. Nice one!

    I wouldn’t make it invisible, anyway. I would prefere to make it grayed: = ‘gray';

    instead of = ‘none';

    I am using a textbox(for itemsperpage) and passing the value of textbox as below

    var pager = new Pager(‘results’,document.form.text.value);

    whenever i click a button it will call a function which hold the script as below

    function page(){
    var pager = new Pager(‘results’, 3);
    pager.showPageNav(‘pager’, ‘pageNavPosition’);

    if I do so, I am getting pager is not defined.

    please provide some solution for getting the ‘number of items’ from user and paginating accordingly

  23. 23 Vincenzo

    I need to use your script for three table in the same page…can you tell me where I must change the code? if I change the name of the ID in the file, the css is incorrect…sorry for my bad english, but I’m Italian!





    Please Help me!….THANK YOU!!

  24. 24 Luigi


    var pager = new Pager('results', 3);
    pager.showPageNav('pager', 'pageNavPosition');

    var pager2 = new Pager('results2', 3);
    pager2.showPageNav('pager2', 'pageNavPosition');

    And so on…

  25. 25 Vincenzo

    Thank you Luigi, but I have also tried this solution before to send here my question.
    I have resolved the problem with a new parameter “prefixPg” in the function Pager

    function Pager(tableName, itemsPerPage, prefixPg)

    I use this parameter for to concat it to the old ID in the tag SPAN, so I have created different ID for different table.

    In the function showPage I have concat the variable “prefixPg” for to call the right ID:
    var oldPageAnchor = document.getElementById(this.prefixPg ‘pg’ this.currentPage);
    var newPageAnchor = document.getElementById(this.prefixPg ‘pg’ this.currentPage);

    and also in the function showPageNav in the loop FOR I have added the variable prefixPg for create the ID dynamically:
    pagerHtml = ” page ‘ | ‘;

    Bye Bye and thanks anyway for your help! ;)

  28. 28 Mark

    Hi Luigi,

    Thanks for this great script. I am using this for a new project.

    There is one thing which would make the script even better.
    For example:

    1. I’ll start a search on my website
    2. Results are shown with your table-pagination-script
    3. I click forward to page 5 of the results.
    4. On this page I follow a link to another webpage for more information.
    5. Then I use the back button to return to the results.

    As you can imagine: the results always start on the first page (and do not send me back to page 5). This is due to the pager2.showPage(1); code…

    Is it possible to ‘remember’ te last page and bring me back using the back button in my browser?

    Thanks in advance!

  29. 29 Luigi

    Hi All.

    I am no more actively working on this script. It was just an example, and for sure it can be improved in many ways.
    All the improvement requests I saw here are possible (and, in most of the cases, not difficult to implement). But unluckily I have not much time to do more work on this, so take it as it is, or improve it yourself.

    If I ever will work again on this script I’ll share the improvements, or I’ll make it as an open source project to allow everyone to make it better. For now, I cannot actively support change requests, sorry.

    The example above was just to show that complex things can be made simpler if changing the perspective (paginate on the client, instead of using complex server side logics, or AJAX calls or other cool technologies).
    I used this script on production to fake server side pagination: if the analysts knew that I was going to paginate on the client hundreds of records, the would say “are you crazy? loading everything on an html page is damn slow!”. Well, it wasn’t slow, and actually I got compliments on how fast it was to pass from one page to the next after ;) (after the first load, of course, that was just taking a couple of seconds).

    thank you very much for your excellent code, it seemed very easy to implement, it seemed.

    According to the layout of my homepage i have to put the content of my dynamically table
    into a div.

    When opening my homepage all seems fine (the table is being generated and the paginator
    too), but when clicking on a page-number or the link “next” nothing happens and i get the
    error-message “pager is not defined” in the error-console of Mozilla Firefox.

    I really don’t know why.

    Could you please help me to get rid of this error.

    Thank you very much.

    Can anyone suggest , how to keep the track of current page using this paging.js?

    Thanks in advance,

  43. 43 NomogoLoula

    Great pager. Simple and reusable.

    In order to page some list, just replace the 2 “.rows” property-calls on main table with “getElementsByTagName(“li”), took the ul’s id as the main table.

    Done ^^.

    Thanks a lot.

    Wonderful script for client side pagination. Very easy to understand also. Thanks

  56. 56 Petar Dimov


    This is nice script and working correctly, but i want to redirect on the same page in pagination when i submit the form. How to do that.


  57. 57 Luigi

    Hi Petar. Hi everyone.

    To redirect on the proper page, it’s a server side stuff: after the actions have been executed you send a redirect command to the browser (HTTP status 302; sendRedirect() in Java) and that should work.

    To set the active page for the table you simply call pager.showPage(pageNumber); you can bind that to onload event (, this info also should come from the server.

    It shouldn’t be difficult as I was implementing this flow also in my application where I originally implemented the script you are using.

    Hope this helps, but I’m sorry I cannot help you further: I am working on other stuff, now and that script it’s very old to me. That script is just an article I made on free time. And people started to ask me many variants; unfortunately I have no time (and money) to invest on it: it’s not a product, it’s just an example.
    If you need community or professional support you may want to look at commercial or open source products (Example:, or hire some experts.

    Good luck to everyone.

  58. 58 Shawn

    How would you modify this script to paginate the columns rather than the rows?

    and thanks for this wonderful code

  68. 68 gautham

    I am working on a project in Struts2- springs 3.5- hibernate 3.5,
    In this, we had to collect a list of objects and list them in a jsp.
    I acheived all of this. Then i was asked to paginate the data.
    I tried using paging tag library and display tag libraries. All of it worked perfect.
    Display tag library had no provision for usage of javascript because i was passing all the parameters of the listed record via onclick and then do a form submit cos this method persisted the record.
    Now with the usage of display tags i wasnt able to do that. Paging tagLib had its own short cominsg.

    THANKS A TON !!!

    Thanks for your great contribution, it works very good on my page.

    I found a strange issue, if I set 20 rows in a page like this.

    var pager = new Pager(‘productresult’, 20);

    only 19 rows will be shown on first page, and leave on more row in last page.

    Could you please help me to find out reason why? Thank.

    Ur script really helped me.

    Thanks a lot !!

  90. 90 Chris

    Looks like the comment system doesn’t like code blocks… here’s what i changed:

    For header skip/or not stuff:
    this.skipHeader = false;
    to the constructor

    change the for loop in showRecords to initialize i with:
    (this.skipHeader) ? i=1:i=0

    in showPage, update the calculation for from to be:
    var from = (pageNumber – 1) * itemsPerPage ((this.skipHeader) ? 1:0);

    in init, update the record calculation to be:
    var records = (rows.length – ((this.skipHeader) ? 1:0));

    For multiple paginated tables per page:
    in showPage and showPageNav update the id creation to include the tableName
    var oldPageAnchor = document.getElementById(this.tableName ‘_pg_’ this.currentPage);
    id=”‘ this.tableName ‘_pg_’ page ‘”

    To only show pagination for tables with more than 1 page:
    put a conditional block around the output of the paging navigation (needed in showPage and showPageNav)
    if (this.pages>1)
    //paging stuff

    Hej There,

    i need some help with this script, i got 2 tables on the same page and both need this function, so what i read in the comments is that i’ve got change it like this

    it works fine, they now both act seperatly, but the problem is, if i navigate on the second table, the numbers aren’t getting bold or underlined, he does that on the first table.

    so i’ve i pres page 2 on the second table the 2 in the first table gets bold.

    can you help fix this?

    Thanks a lot!

    Here is the code fixed for more tables. All you have to do in the HTML file is make sure that the pager name, results name and the pageNavPosition is unique.

    .pg-normal {
    color: black;
    font-weight: normal;
    text-decoration: none;
    cursor: pointer;
    .pg-selected {
    color: black;
    font-weight: bold;
    text-decoration: underline;
    cursor: pointer;

    I took the liberty to modify this so the pagination numbering look a little more organizable. Major Code change is on showPageNav(), and added showPageNav() call to all of the prev(), next(), and showPage().

    There is a slight change to init. Here it is:

    var pager = new Pager('panel', 10);
    pager.showPageNav('pager', 'pageNavPosition', 1);

    function Pager(tableName, itemsPerPage) {
    this.tableName = tableName;
    this.itemsPerPage = itemsPerPage;
    this.currentPage = 1;
    this.pages = 0;
    this.inited = false;
    this.positionId = '';
    this.pageName = '';

    this.showRecords = function(from, to) {
    var rows = document.getElementById(tableName).rows;
    // i starts from 1 to skip table header row
    for (var i = 1; i < rows.length; i ) {
    if (i to)
    rows[i].style.display = 'none';
    rows[i].style.display = '';

    this.showPage = function(pageNumber) {
    if (! this.inited) {
    alert("not inited");

    var oldPageAnchor = document.getElementById('pg' this.currentPage);
    oldPageAnchor.className = 'pg-normal';

    this.currentPage = pageNumber;
    var newPageAnchor = document.getElementById('pg' this.currentPage);
    newPageAnchor.className = 'pg-selected';

    var from = (pageNumber - 1) * itemsPerPage 1;
    var to = from itemsPerPage - 1;
    this.showRecords(from, to);

    if (pageNumber == 1) {
    document.getElementById('prev').style.display = 'none';
    } else {
    document.getElementById('prev').style.display = 'block';

    if (pageNumber == this.pages) {
    document.getElementById('next').style.display = 'none';
    } else {
    document.getElementById('next').style.display = 'block';

    this.showPageNav(this.pageName, this.positionId, pageNumber);

    this.prev = function() {
    if (this.currentPage > 1) {
    this.showPage(this.currentPage - 1);
    this.showPageNav(this.pageName, this.positionId, this.currentPage);
    } = function() {
    if (this.currentPage < this.pages) {
    this.showPage(this.currentPage 1);
    this.showPageNav(this.pageName, this.positionId, this.currentPage);

    this.init = function() {
    var rows = document.getElementById(tableName).rows;
    var records = (rows.length - 1);
    this.pages = Math.ceil(records / itemsPerPage);
    this.inited = true;

    this.showPageNav = function(pagerName, positionId, position) {
    if (!this.inited) {
    alert("not inited");
    this.pageName = pagerName;
    this.positionId = positionId;

    var pagerHtml = ' &#171 Prev | ';
    if (position > 6) {
    pagerHtml = '... | ';
    for (var page = (position - 5 > 0 ? position - 5 : 1); page this.pages ? this.pages : position 6); page ) {
    pagerHtml = '' page ' | ';
    if (position 5 < this.pages) {
    pagerHtml = '... | ';
    pagerHtml = ' Next »';

    document.getElementById(positionId).innerHTML = pagerHtml;

    Hi ,

    i need “<>” implementation in this same pagination . First should come before Previous link and Last should come after Next link. can anyone help ….

    Thanks in advance.

    thanx for the code. It really helps. I want to change style sheet even when I place pointer to any page number. Please help me

    Excellent Script. Really does the job but just one thing, my table actually pulls the content and calculate rank before displaying. What happens when I pull the content, it only sort the ranks of current page content rather than the complete table. Once clicked, it does trigger and sort the complete ranks but can’t see a possible quick way to fix it.

    In either case, it does the job and is very helpful. Thanks for sharing.

    Do any of you know how to eliminate the numbers at the bottom of the page?
