Super Simple Javascript Paging System

by Thomas Aylott aka oblivious at subtleGradient.com


How does it work?

First, include all your html on the page. Give each paged element a classname of page1, page2, etc... as many as there are. Then add the classnames subtlePager page1 and pages10 to the parent element. You can have unlimited pagers per page. See the subtlePager.demo.html file for a working demo.

Setup

  • HTML

    • [required] Parent element
      • id attribute
      • class attribute
        EG: subtlePager pages5 page1
        • subtlePager
          This classname is required by the default CSS
        • pages#
          # is the maximum number of pages, EG: pages5 for a total of 5 pages
        • page#
          # is the default page to display. I recommend just using page1 here
    • [required] Child elements
      • class attribute
        • page#
          # is the page number that you want this element to be visible on.
    • [required] Trigger element(s)
      • [optional] onclick
        • subtlePager.page(elementId)
        • subtlePager.page(elementId, true)
        • subtlePager.page(elementId, 5)
  • CSS

    • [optional] Define your custom "CSS Static Logic"
  • JS

    • [optional] Redefine defaults

You'll need to attach the functions to your trigger elements somehow, the simplest method is to just use an onclick attribute. But I highly recommend you use an eventListener somehow. I leave that as an exercise for the reader.

Triggering Functions

subtlePager.page(elementId)
Goes to the previous page

subtlePager.page(elementId, true)
Goes to the next page

subtlePager.page(elementId, 5)
Goes to page 5
