I had a similar problem .. i had to display 10000 records, so I built a 'scrolling table' control. I used tables as 'pages', so I would set a page size (e.g. 25 rows) and return a table containing it. The control just appends a bunch of tables together, but to the user it looks like one table. it fetches 'pages' based on scroll position.
