NAME

EPrints::Paginate - Methods for rendering a paginated List


DESCRIPTION

  • $xhtml = EPrints::Paginate->paginate_list( $session, $basename, $list, %opts )
Render a "paginated" view of the list i.e. display a "page" of items with links to navigate through the list.
$basename is the basename to use for pagination-specific CGI parameters, to avoid clashes.
 %opts is a hash of options which can be used to customise the behaviour and/or rendering of the paginated list. See EPrints::Search for a good example!
Behaviour options:
    • page_size
The maximum number of items to display on a page.
    • pagejumps
The maximum number of page jump links to display.
    • params
A hashref of parameters to include in the prev/next/jump URLs, e.g. to maintain the state of other controls on the page between jumps.
Rendering options:
    • controls_before, controls_after
Additional links to display before/after the page navigation controls.
    • container
A containing XML DOM element for the list of items on the current page.
    • render_result, render_result_params
A custom subroutine for rendering an individual item on the current page. The subroutine will be called with $session, $item, and the parameter specified by the render_result_params option. The rendered item should be returned.
    • phrase
The phrase to use to render the entire "page". Can make use of the following pins:
      • controls
prev/next/jump links
      • searchdesc
description of list e.g. what search parameters produced it
      • matches
total number of items in list, range of items displayed on current page
      • results
list of rendered items
      • controls_if_matches
prev/next/jump links (only if list contains >0 items)
These can be overridden in the "pins" option (below).
    • pins
Named "pins" to render on the page. These may override the default "pins" (see above), or specify new "pins" (although you would need to define a custom phrase in order to make use of them).
