DevArticles has the first part of a new series posted today – a look at the creation of a pagnation system with a little help from Ajax.
You know how to use AJAX to pull rows from a database, but do you know how to create an AJAX-based system to organize the records neatly into pages? You’ll know how to do that by the end of this series! This first article shows you how to build the user interface.
They mention a better name for the system a bit further down – a “dynamic scrolling system”, a method of displaying the data from your database a page at a time. The first few results are shown to start, but as the user scrolls the area down, new entries are grabbed by the Ajax script from the database.
