Navigation Links Help

Navigation Links Server Behavior:

This behavior will allow you to navigate through a recordset that contains a Repeat Region behavior or a Horizontal Looper behavior. It should be used on pages that show only partial recordsets. It will give you a set of links like this:

First | Previous | Next | Last


<<  <   >  >>


D'abord | Ensuite | Dernier | Précédent


Primo *~* Precedente *~* Seguente *~* Ultimo

The links are only active if there is a record to go to. For example, if you are on the first record, the First and Previous links will be inactive, as shown here. This is what differentiates this behavior from the standard UltraDev Recordset Navigation Bar.

The delimiter that's used between the links is completely user-defined and can be anything. If nothing is input, it defaults to a single space between the links. Styles work with the links, as well. Simply select the behavior in the Server Behaviors >> DWTeam >> Recordset Navigation menu, or the placeholder on the page, or the code in source view and apply a style to it.

To use the behavior you need to do the following:

1. Add your recordset to the page.

2. Add your database columns to the page and apply a repeat region to them choosing the number of records that you want displayed on each page.

3. Pick a spot on the page where you want Navigation Links to appear and select Navigation Links from the Server Behaviors >> DWTeam >> Recordset Navigation menu. You'll see the following dialog box:

4. Choose the correct recordset from the dropdown box.

5. Pick a delimiter that will appear between the links. NOTE: If you want a space before and after the delimiter you should add those here as well.

6. Choose your text or images for the links.

7. Click Preview Refresh to see what your link looks like.

8. If any changes need to be made, make the changes and then click the Preview Refresh button once again to see what the link will look like.

9. Click the OK button.

Added to version 1.2.0 is the ability to browse for an image to use for each of the links and the delimeter as well. Also note that you can cwombine images and text.
