JQuery : Quick paging solution with JQuery


Many of the times we have to give the paging solutions with JQuery. I have created a small generic script that will allow you to apply paging on html table very quickly. Just a few settings and script will manage the paging(Note:- Right now the script will apply one one table on a page).


  1. Table ID : Apply an ID to the table with prefix "rpt". In our case we have used "rptPagingTable".
  2. Paging Items : All the rows which are going to be shown on the basis of page. Apply a custom tag to the row(tag="item").
  3. Next/Previous : The paging box will have a tag(tag="paging"). There are seperate tags assigned to the button Next and Previous. For Previous it is (tag="pre") and for Next it is (tag="next").


    <style type="text/css">
        body{font-family:Calibri,Verdana,Arial,Times New Roman;}
        .datagrid{border: 1px solid #808080;}
        .datagrid td{border: 1px solid #efefef;border-collapse: none;padding: 5px;}
        .header{background-color: #808080;color: #fff;text-align: center;font-size: 20px;}
        .itemtemplate{background-color: #fff;}
        .alternatingitemtemplate{background-color: #efefdf;}
        .footer{background-color: #808080;color: #fff;font-size: 15px;}
        .pager{background-color: #CED3D6;color: #000;font-size: 15px;text-align: center;}
        .pager a{color: #0877BD;}
        .pre{float: left;}
        .next{float: right;}
    <script>!window.jQuery && document.write('<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"><\/script>');</script>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

        //Variable for paging
        var _currentPage = 1;
        var _pageSize = 0;
        var _totalPages = 1;

        $(document).ready(function () {

            //Setting the page size
            _pageSize = $("table[id*='rpt']").attr("pagesize");

            //Total Item
            var _trItem = $("tr[tag='item']");
            var _pager = $("tr[tag='paging']");

            //Calculate the page size
            _totalPages = parseInt($(_trItem).length / _pageSize) + ($(_trItem).length % _pageSize > 0 ? 1 : 0);

            //Hide the pager if the items are less than 13
            if ($(_trItem).length > _pageSize) {
            else {

            //Page One Settings

            $("a[tag='pre']").click(function () {

                if (_currentPage == 1) {

                //Reduce the page index

            //Hide all first

            //Show correct items

                var x = i + 1;
