Paging tab

This tab allows you to display a Paging panel below your data grid which displays text such as 'Page 1 of 5'.  This is only available if paging has been enabled on the 'Data grid' tab. 

Paging variable fields

The default paging text is:

Page <PageNumber> of <TotalPages>

The <PageNumber> and <TotalPages> fields are placeholders that will be replaced with their numbers when the data grid is playing, so the final output will be something like:

Page 4 of 15

You can then choose exactly how you want your paging text to be displayed.   For example, you could change to Spanish quite easily using:

Página <PageNumber> de <TotalPages>

These are all the variable fields available to you:
Variable Description
<PageNumber> Current page number.
<TotalPages> Total number of pages.
<CurrentRecordFrom> The record number of the first record being displayed in the current page.
<CurrentRecordTo> The record number of the last record being displayed in the current page.
<TotalRecords> The total number of records.
<PageSize> The number of records in each page.  This can be set on the 'Data grid' tab.

So to use all of these in an example sentence:

Displaying page <PageNumber> of <TotalPages> with <PageSize> records per page.  Currently displaying record <CurrentRecordFrom> to <CurrentRecordTo> from a total of <TotalRecords> records

You can also use Repeat Signage local variables.

HTML text formatting support

You can use basic HTML tags to within your text if required.   This includes using the HTML <BR> tag for line breaks and <strong></strong> tags for making text bold, etc.  We don't support all HTML tags.  See Repeat Signage Basic HTML for a list of supported tags and examples. 


You have the following options:

Paging text - The text to display including your field names. 

Text align - Where the text will appear in the panel.  TOP LEFT, MIDDLE CENTRE, etc.

Panel height - The height in pixels of this panel.   You will need to adjust this depending on the amount of text your are displaying and the size and type of the font.

Vertical padding - If you have the text align set to TOP LEFT then setting so 10, for example, moves then text down from the top edge of the panel.

Horizontal padding - If you have the text align set to TOP LEFT then setting so 10, for example, starts the text further in from the left edge.

Font - Choose a font and size.

Paging text colour - The colour of the text.  This needs to be a solid colour.

Paging back colour - The background colour.  This can be a solid or gradient colour.
