Telerik UI for Windows 8 HTML

This article, describes the configuration options of the RadPagination control.

Assigning a Pageable Control

To start using a RadPagination control, you should assign it a control to page, for example a FlipView. To do so, set the pageProvider property value to point to the paged control instance:

Assigning a Pageable Control Example Copy imageCopy
<div id="flipView1" data-win-control="WinJS.UI.FlipView" style="width: 500px; height: 250px" data-win-options="{ 
    itemDataSource: DefaultData.bindingList.dataSource, 
    itemTemplate: select('#flipViewItemTemplate') 
<div id="pagination1" data-win-control="Telerik.UI.RadPagination" data-win-options="{
    pageProvider: select('#flipView1')

Here, DefaultData.bindingList is of type WinJS.Binding.List and is defined like this for the purpose of the example.

Sample Data Copy imageCopy
WinJS.Namespace.define("DefaultData", {
    bindingList: new WinJS.Binding.List([
        type: "item",
        title: "Soft Drink",
        picture: "/images/food/1.jpg",
        thumb: "/images/thumbs/1.jpg"

Once RadPagination is associated with a pageable control, it can perform the following actions:

  • Receive notifications when the current page changes and update its own UI—thumbnails and index label

  • Navigate the pageable control in response to user action—clicking prev/next buttons and thumbnail items.

Providing a Template for the Thumbnails

You can define a template that will be used for rendering the thumbnail items. This is done through the itemTemplate property, which accepts:

  • A WinJS.BindingTemplate instance or an HTML element hosting a template.

  • A function returning an HTML string or a DOM element.

  • An HTML string with binding expressions defining the template.

The code sample that follows uses a WinJS.BindingTemplate instance:

Template Copy imageCopy
<div id="paginationTemplate" data-win-control="WinJS.Binding.Template" style="display: none">
    <img class="thumbitem" src="#" data-win-bind="src:thumb;" />
RadPagination Definition Copy imageCopy
<div id="pagination2" data-win-control="Telerik.UI.RadPagination" data-win-options="{
    pageProvider: select('#flipView2'),
    itemTemplate: select('#paginationTemplate')
Providing item template

Controlling Visibility of Elements

It is up to you to decide which parts of the pagination controls should be visible. To hide its page buttons, label or thumbnails, set the showButtons, showLabel and showThumbnails properties, respectively, to false. They are all set to true by default.

Hiding the Buttons Copy imageCopy
<div id="pagination3" data-win-control="Telerik.UI.RadPagination" data-win-options="{
    pageProvider: select('#flipView3'),
    itemTemplate: select('#paginationTemplate'),
    showButtons: false

The code sample above hides page navigation buttons and will leave only the thumbnails as the means for flipping the views.

Hide buttons

Customizing the Page Index Label

You could customize the content of the label saying "X/Y" next to the RadPagination control. To do so, use the label.template property. The available values are page, count and separator.

Customizing the Page Index Label Example Copy imageCopy
<div id="pagination4" data-win-control="Telerik.UI.RadPagination" data-win-options="{
    pageProvider: select('#flipView4'),
    label: {
        template: 'Item #=page# of #=count#'
Providing label template

Disabling the Control

To prevent user-defined paging for the RadPagination control, set its enabled property to false. Once you do so, only programmatic navigation of the control is possible. This can be done using the prev() and next() methods, which navigate to the previous and next item respectively; or by changing the currentIndex property value.

Disabling the Control Example Copy imageCopy
<div id="pagination5" data-win-control="Telerik.UI.RadPagination" data-win-options="{
        pageProvider: select('#flipView5'),
        itemTemplate: select('#paginationTemplate'),
        enabled: false
