Splitting content is important to avoid overloading the user with information. The Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Pager component separates content into pages which the user can browse through. This is best used with components which are prone to displaying large amounts of data like the ListView. The Pager supports a ton of customization on many of its elements and has built in support for Localization.
The Pager component will automatically generate a number of buttons and also display an input element so that users can input their own page numbers. You can enable/disable either of these elements and the same is also true for several more elements of the control. You have control over most other elements including a dropdown for the page size, a refresh button, buttons for navigating to the first, last, previous and next pages.
The generated page number links which the pager displays have a default appearance which can be overridden by providing a template. Two different templates can be supplied – one controls the visual appearance of the button for the currently selected page, one controls all other page buttons.
The Pager is responsive by default and operate on a any resolution. When viewed on smaller screens, it will hide some of its elements in order to save space for what’s most important. In some cases, that might be undesirable (e.g. you might want to preserve everything!). Visit our docs to read what the exact rules of scaling are and how to disable responsiveness if necessary.
All text elements of the Pager Component are localizable – navigation links, tooltips, etc. As with the rest of our Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC suite, every language on the globe can be supported so you can build a truly global application.
The Telerik ASP.NET MVC Pager has 20+ built-in themes such as Default (our own styling), Material (based on the Material Design guidelines) and Bootstrap (which looks like the Bootstrap styling to integrate better). You can easily customize any of out-of-the-box themes with a few lines of CSS, or create new theme to match your colors and branding by using the Telerik SASS ThemeBuilder application.
