To take full control over the pager layout, content, and functionality, use the
PagerTemplateDirective. It allows you to mix and match built-in Pager building blocks with any other Angular components or DOM elements.
You can customize the Pager by using the following built-in elements exposed by the Grid:
- PagerInfoComponent—Shows information about the current page and the total number of records.
- PagerInputComponent—Displays an input element which allows typing and rendering of page numbers.
- PagerNextButtonsComponent—Displays buttons for navigating to the next and the last page.
- PagerNumericButtonsComponent—Displays numeric buttons for navigation between the pages.
- PagerPageSizesComponent—Displays a drop-down list for the page size selection.
- PagerPrevButtonsComponent—Displays buttons for navigating to the first and previous page.
- GridSpacer—Provides additional white space between the pager inner elements.
The following example demonstrates how to define the built-in pager components inside an
<ng-template> tag with applied
In some scenarios, the built-in pager elements do not entirely meet your requirements. In such cases, the
PagerTemplateDirective enables you to use any set of Angular components and DOM elements that fit the specific use case.
The following example demonstrates how to use the Kendo UI for Angular Slider to paginate the data.
When you use only built-in Pager components in the Pager template, the default Grid keyboard navigation will work out-of-the-box.
To preserve the keyboard navigation functionality when using other Angular components or focusable HTML elements in the Pager template, place the
kendoGridFocusable directive on each focusable element.
The following example demonstrates how to use a Slider component for changing the page and an HTML Input element for setting the page size.
GridSpacer component enables you to add free space between the Pager's inner elements and arrange them. By default, each
<kendo-grid-spacer> element occupies all available space. To override this behavior and specify a custom size, use the
The following example demonstrates how to position the numeric buttons in the center of the available Pager space.
