Howzit George,

I stand to be corrected, but I think dataTable has pagination built into it, using the rows attribute. Maybe you can look at how that works. Let me know if it helps.

looks like it can be used hand in hand with tomahawk's dataScoller.

you can also try trinidad tags for this:
<tr:table rows="3">
<trutputText value="#{}"

This will make the table display only 3 values at a time and the remaining values will be displayed only after clicking the 'next' link which is defaultly displayed.

hi all,
Is it possible to create customised messages near the drop down?. i mean instead of 'Next 1' and 'Previous 1', we need some other message to be shown there.
