Show a pager for search results.

This generates a pager as seen on the search results pages. It is used in conjunction with a paged search result.

For example, a fulltext search where the search parameters come from the query string:

{% with[{fulltext cat=q.qcat text=q.qs}] as result %}
    {% pager result=result dispatch="admin_overview_rsc" qargs %}
    {% for id,score in result %}
      <li><a href="">{{ m.rsc[id].title }}</a></li>
    {% empty %}
      <li>Nothing found</li>
    {% endfor %}
{% endwith %}

This will show a list of titles and above that the links to the next, previous and other pages.


that we are using here and not :ref:` <model-search>`. The pager only works with results from

The generated pager code will look something like (when searching for the text “filter”):

<ul class="pager block">
<li>« prev</li>
<li class="current"><a href="/admin/overview?qs=filter&page=1">1</a></li>
<li><a href="/admin/overview?qs=filter&page=2">2</a></li>
<li><a href="/admin/overview?qs=filter&page=3">3</a></li>
<li><a href="/admin/overview?qs=filter&page=4">4</a></li>
<li class="pager-sep">…</li>
<li><a href="/admin/overview?qs=filter&page=5">5</a></li>
<li><a href="/admin/overview?qs=filter&page=2">next»</a></li>

The pager tag accepts the following arguments:

Argument Description Example
result The result from a search. This must be a #search_result or #m_search_result record. Note that this must be the result of a and not of a call. result=mysearchresult
dispatch Name of the dispatch rule to be used for the page urls. Defaults to the dispatch rule of the current page. dispatch="searchresult"
qargs Append all the arguments in the HTTP request’s query string whose name starts with a 'q' as an argument to the dispatch rule. qargs
hide_single_page When this argument is true, do not show the pager when the result fits on one page (e.g. the pager will be useless). hide_single_page=1
template Name of the template for rendering the pager. Defaults to _pager.tpl. See below for specific arguments passed. template="_pager.tpl"
* Any other argument is used as an argument for the dispatch rule.  

Pager template

The pager is rendered using a template. The default template for the pager is _pager.tpl.

The pager template receives the following variables:

  • prev_url The url to the previous page, undefined if at first page.
  • next_url The url to the next page, undefined if at last page.
  • pages A list of tuples. Either {PageNumber, Url} or {undefined, sep} (sep is an atom).
  • page The current page number
  • All other arguments passed to the scomp (attention: these are also used as dispatch arguments)

The default _pager.tpl displays an ellipsis for the sep entry.

If the result set is empty then the template is not rendered. The template is also not rendered if there is a single page and hide_single_page is set.
