Paging control was a common pattern for controlling the number of records shown on a page and for fetching another set of records. Today, with the richer functionality provided by browsers, you can get a better user experience with native scroll functionality and a “load more” approach. I blogged about it in a previous entry that shows how scrolling/fetching/pagination works in VB tables by default. This “load more on scroll” approach is what you see in your Twitter and Facebook feeds for example. Google’s search page seems to be one of the last remaining sites to stick with the “next 10 records” approach. At Oracle our UI experts also instructed our Cloud Apps development teams to not use paging controls. But, if you insist on adding a pagination control to your tables, here is a quick demo showing how to achieve this.
