Nice Page Number Navigation for Recordsets

John Avis by | October 3, 2007 | Classic ASP

The following script creates links to navigate through your database table recordset.

It is a solution to displaying navigation links where the number of pages may be quite large and there may not be enough room to display all page numbers.

Sometimes it can be frustrating for users if there is only a previous and next link but they want to get to a page half way through of 50 pages.

It creates links to the surrounding pages as well as the first or last page, as well as previous and next links.

A few examples:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 ... 100 Next

Previous 1 ... 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 ... 100 Next

Previous 1 ... 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 99 100

The following variables and objects are used and may need to be changed for your application.

'lngPage' is the current page number and this is passed in the URL parameter 'page'.
'rsTable' is the recordset.
'page.asp' should be changed to the correct script name and any additional parameters added to the querystring.

Although probably no one cares about Classic ASP, except those who still need to support it, I was refreshing my memory today on how to use classes in Classic ASP and found a couple of options for simulating constructors with parameters.
