Show first / last data record




This setting adds links beneath the table that allow you to navigate to the first or last data record on the first or last page of the table respectively.

Show previous / next page




This setting adds links beneath the table that allow you to move to the previous or next page of the table.

Show each page




Shows links to the page numbers of the table so that you can switch to the individual pages directly.

Number of records per page




Adds a drop-down list in the browser that allows you to set how many data records are shown per table page.

Maximum number of records per page

A user will not be able to select a higher value in the browser. If you select the value -1 as a maximum number, the highest value that can be selected in the browser will correspond to the number of data records.

Show total number of records




The sum of all data records that are contained in the table (including pages that are not visible) will be shown.

Edit text

By default, the sum is determined with the function "$totalCount results". If required, you can enter a text of your choice or use a constant that provides the text.

Show sorting




This displays a drop-down list that allows users to select a data field to sort the table by. In a further list, the sorting in the browser can be set as descending or ascending order.

Always show navigation element

If this property is not set, the navigation element will only be shown if the table contains multiple pages.
