Paginator helper

You can view the source on GitHub.

Restricted nav creation, makes a navigation bar like:

[<]  1  2  3  4  [>]

Example setup

To create a paginator object, you typically just pass in the number of items:

$paginator = new paginator(1234);

Alternatively, you can pass in an array of options:

$paginator = new paginator(array(
        'item_limit' => 3,
        'item_count' => 1234,
    ));

Defaults can be set with the site config using:

paginator.item_limit
paginator.item_count
paginator... see below for the rest

Example function calls

To get details from the paginator, you could use:

$limit_sql = $paginator->limit_get_sql();

$item_count = $paginator->item_count_get();
$page_size = $paginator->page_size_get();
$page_number = $paginator->page_number_get();
$page_count = $paginator->page_count_get();

$page_5_url = $paginator->page_url_get(5);

Example array usage

To use the paginator to slice an array:

$paginator = new paginator();

$array = $paginator->limit_array($array);

And to print:

<?= $paginator->html(); ?>

Example database usage

To use the paginator to return some records in a table:

$sql = 'SELECT
            COUNT(id)
        FROM
            table';

$result_count = $db->fetch($sql);

$paginator = new paginator($result_count);

Then the actual query:

$sql = 'SELECT
            id,
            name
        FROM
            table
        LIMIT
            ' . $paginator->limit_get_sql();

foreach ($db->fetch_all($sql) as $row) {
}

$response->set('paginator', $paginator);

And to print:

<?= $paginator->html(); ?>

This works well with the table helper.


Usage with SQL Found Rows

Only do this if it's actually more efficient, many times it can be much slower than two separate queries (see above).

$paginator = new paginator();

$sql = 'SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS
            id,
            name
        FROM
            ' . DB_PREFIX . 'table
        WHERE
            deleted = "0000-00-00 00:00:00"
        LIMIT
            ' . $paginator->limit_get_sql();

foreach ($db->fetch_all($sql) as $row) {
}

$sql = 'SELECT FOUND_ROWS()';

$paginator->item_count_set($db->fetch($sql), true);

Note that the 'true' used to set the item count will trigger a redirect if the requested page number is too high (and would show no results).


Usage with forms

If you want to use submit buttons (rather than links), then set the 'mode' config:

$paginator = new paginator(array(
        'item_count' => $result_count,
        'mode' => 'form',
    ));

This version will change the page number immediately.

Alternativly, if you need to save something first, then use:

$paginator = new paginator(array(
        'item_count' => $result_count,
        'mode' => 'form_redirect',
    ));

if ($form->submitted() && $form->valid()) {
    redirect($paginator->redirect_url_get());
}

Show page count

See below for a more customisable solution, but if you just want to show the number of pages/records next to all paginators:

$config['paginator.extra_html'] = '<span class="pagination_extra">Page [PAGE_NUMBER] of [PAGE_COUNT]</span>';

Or just the one:

$paginator = new paginator(array(
        'item_count' => 1234,
        'extra_html' => '<span class="pagination_extra">Page [PAGE_NUMBER] of [PAGE_COUNT]</span>',
    ));

Or maybe you want to print the paginator twice (above/below table), but only show the page and item count on the first one:

class paginator extends paginator_base {

    private $print_count = 0;

    public function html_extra() {
        if ($this->print_count++ == 0) {
            $item_count = $this->item_count_get();
            return '<span class="pagination_extra"> - ' . html($this->page_count_get()) . ' pages, ' . html(number_format($item_count)) . ($item_count == 1 ? ' record' : ' records') . '</span>';
        } else {
            return '';
        }
    }

}

Config options

The pagination helper has the following configuration options available.

item_limit
    24, as its divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12.

item_count
    Number of items to represent.

base_url
    Used for the links, typically not needed.

mode
    'link', or set to 'form' or 'form_redirect' for buttons.

variable
    'page', the name of the variable used in the query string.

elements
    array(
        '<p class="pagination">',
        'hidden',
        'first',
        'back',
        'links',
        'next',
        'last',
        'extra',
        '</p>' . "\n")

indent_html
    "\n\t\t\t\t"

first_html
    NULL

back_html
    [«]

next_html
    [»]

last_html
    NULL

number_pad
    0, allow page numbers to be padded to a certain length (e.g. 3).

link_count
    9, number of links shown.

link_wrapper_element
    'span'

extra_html
    NULL, but could be '<span class="pagination_extra">Page [PAGE_NUMBER] of [PAGE_COUNT]</span>'

If you need to customise the output further, it is possible to extend the pagination class with your own html_format() or html() methods:

/app/library/class/paginator.php

class paginator extends paginator_base {

    protected function html_format($elements_html) {

        // $item_count = $this->item_count_get();

        // $links_html = implode(' | ', $elements_html['links_array']);

        $html = '
            <div class="paginator">
                ' . $elements_html['hidden'] . '
                <div class="first">' . $elements_html['first'] . '</div>
                <div class="back">' . $elements_html['back'] . '</div>
                <div class="links">' . $elements_html['links'] . '</div>
                <div class="next">' . $elements_html['next'] . '</div>
                <div class="last">' . $elements_html['last'] . '</div>
                <div class="extra">' . $elements_html['extra'] . '</div>
            </div>';

        return $html;

    }

}
