Displaying pages without ellipses in the pagination control of a datatable


I am using jQuery Datatables JS with Bootstrap, I am running into an issue where there is a workaround but it is not the nicest.

The issue: my table contains more than 4k records

If the person who is working on the table needs to work from record 200 to 300 and for easibility, he needs to see 10 records in a page, then he can click on 5 on the page number, and then on 6, then on 7 and all the way to page 20. (I know the work around will be to display 100 records and just click on page 3 to start from 200, however as I mentioned due to their job it is easier for them to see no more than 10-20 records per page).

The image below shows that I am unable to go other pages other than first,last, next or previous once I reach page 5

Is there any settings where I can say display all the pages?

This table is processed server side, and I have added the option:

'sPaginationType' : 'full_numbers',

Latest version of DataTables 1.10.7 does not have this ability by default.

There are <a href="http://datatables.net/plug-ins/pagination/" rel="nofollow">pagination plug-ins</a> that provide additional functionality. One of them, <a href="http://datatables.net/plug-ins/pagination/ellipses" rel="nofollow">Ellipses</a>, has iShowPages option allowing to define number of pages to display in pagination control.

However per <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/30633288/displaying-all-pages-from-the-pagination-of-a-datatable/30633820#comment49350727_30633820" rel="nofollow">@davidkonrad's note</a>, Ellipses plug-in doesn't fully support DataTables 1.10, i.e. doesn't show currently selected page and disabled state of some buttons.


See <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/a/30850489/3549014" rel="nofollow">this answer</a> or <a href="https://www.gyrocode.com/articles/jquery-datatables-pagination-without-ellipses/" rel="nofollow">jQuery DataTables – Pagination without ellipses</a> for a better solution.


i had this problem before , you can just hide the element using css on the top of your page , just like this :

.ellipsis { display: none; }
