Paging

By default, the paging functionality of the Telerik UI ListView for ASP.NET Core is disabled.

To control the paging in the ListView, use the Pageable option. Additionally, you have to specify the number of records to display on each page by setting the PageSize on the DataSource.

    @(Html.Kendo().ListView<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
          .Name("listview")  
          ...   
          .TagName("div")     
          .Pageable()
          .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Ajax()
                .PageSize(15)
                ...
          )
    )

Try to do paging operations on the server to avoid loading too much data in the HTML, which might slow down page performance. To accomplish this, keep the ServerOperation of the DataSource to its default true value.

You can change the available page sizes from which the user can choose with an array with integer values that are set to the PageSizes property.

    .Pageable(p=> {
        p.PageSizes(new[] { 5, 10, 30 });
    })

Use as small page sizes as possible, because rendering too many records causes performance issues especially when the ListView renders many columns or complex templates for its cells.

  • The ButtonCount method specifies the number of numeric buttons that have to be displayed in the pager. By default, the number of displayed buttons is 10.

        @(Html.Kendo().ListView<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
            .Name("listview")
            .TagName("div") 
            .Pageable(pager => pager.ButtonCount(15))
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Ajax() //Or Server()
                .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))
            )
        )
    
  • The Enabled method enables or disables paging. Use it when you need to enable paging based on a condition.

        @(Html.Kendo().ListView<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
            .Name("listview")
            .TagName("div") 
            .Pageable(pager => pager.Enabled((bool)ViewData["EnablePager"]))
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Ajax() //Or Server()
                .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))
            )
        )
    
  • The Info method specifies whether to show additional paging info. By default, the pager displays the total number of items in the ListView and the first and last item number—for example, "1-50 of 50 items". If the ListView is empty, the pager will show "No items to display". The paging information is displayed by default.

        @(Html.Kendo().ListView<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
            .Name("listview")
            .TagName("div") 
            .Pageable(pager => pager.Info(false))
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Ajax() //Or Server()
                .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))
            )
        )
    
  • The Input method specifies whether to show a textbox for typing in a page number. By default, such a textbox is not shown.

        @(Html.Kendo().ListView<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
            .Name("listview")
            .TagName("div") 
            .Pageable(pager => pager.Input(true))
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Ajax() //Or Server()
                .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))
            )
        )
    
  • The Numeric method sets the numeric pager. When enabled, the pager will display numeric pager buttons. Numeric paging is enabled by default.

        @(Html.Kendo().ListView<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
            .Name("listview")
            .TagName("div") 
            .Pageable(pager => pager
                .Numeric(false)
            )
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Ajax() //Or Server()
                .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))
            )
        )
    
  • The PreviousNext method enables or disables the Previous, Next,First and Last pager buttons. These buttons navigate to the corresponding page when clicked. By default, the method is enabled.

        @(Html.Kendo().ListView<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
            .Name("listview")
            .TagName("div") 
            .Pageable(pager => pager
                .PreviousNext(false)
            )
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Ajax() 
                .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))
            )
        )
    
  • The Refresh method enables or disables the Refresh pager button. Clicking that button reloads the current page. By default, the method is disabled.

        @(Html.Kendo().ListView<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
            .Name("listview")
            .TagName("div") 
            .Pageable(pager => pager
                .Refresh(true)
            )
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Ajax() 
                .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))
            )
        )
    
  • The Responsive method enables or disables the Listview's Pager responsive capabilities (information about number of items displayed per page, currently selected page, total available items, etc). This information will be partly or completely hidden based on the width of the ListView. The responsiveness is enabled by default.

        @(Html.Kendo().ListView<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
            .Name("listview")
            .TagName("div") 
            .Pageable(p => p.Responsive(false))
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Ajax() 
                .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))
            )
        )
    
  • The ListView Pager provides Localization options for defining the text of its messages. To localize the messages, set the desired strings in the PagerMessagesSettingsBuilder configurator.

        @(Html.Kendo().ListView<Kendo.Mvc.Examples.Models.OrderViewModel>()
            .Name("listview")
            .TagName("div") 
            .Pageable(p => p.Messages(m=>{
                    m.Refresh("Refresh data");
                    m.Display("Showing {0}-{1} from {2} data items");
                })
            )
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Ajax() 
                .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))
            )
        )
