Pagination provides horizontal navigation between chunks(pages) of a dataset.


simple pagination

Use the default pagination when you need a simple pagination pattern for a page that will not change size.

Pagination includes several mechanisms to move between pages:

  • Left arrow:
    • Navigates backward one page
    • Disabled when the first page is selected
  • Numbers: redirects directly to a certain dataset chunk (page) calculated with the page size
  • Ellipsis:
    • Appears when the number of pages exceeds six
    • Displays a dropdown menu with the rest of the pages
    • It is always shown in a middle position
  • Right arrow:
    • Navigates forward one page
    • Disabled when the last page is selected

A pagination bar is pagination with the following features:

  • A page size selector placed on the left side of the bar
  • A label on the right side of the page size selector that displays the exact chunk of information displayed from the dataset
  • Classic pagination on the right side of the bar that adapts to the number of pages

Use the pagination bar when you need a complex pagination pattern that requires changing the page size and re-calculating the number of pages.
