Pagination using AngularJS

11. September 2015 AngularJS 5

AngularUI pagination directive can be used to easily enable paging on your web page. In this tutorial we will learn how to do that.



You need to download the following scripts and add a script reference in your web page.

Optional (to have some style)

If you are using Visual Studio you can use NuGet Package Manager and download AngularJs, AngularUI, and Bootstrap.

Adding References

Add the script references to AngularJs, AngularUI, and style reference to Bootstrap in the head of you HTML:

Create angular module, name it paging-app, and inject ui.bootstrap in dependencies array which enables you to use AngularUI pagination directive.

var app = angular.module('paging-app', ['ui.bootstrap']);


Add a controller to the module and name it MainCtrl (or any other name you wish).

Add a filter called start and modifies the code as bellow:

This filter will be used to slice the array based on the current page. We will use it when filtering our list to be displayed on our view.

To sum it up he is our script:

Create View

Modify the HTML body as bellow:

We call init() method to initialize the sample array in ng-init.

Take note of different filters used in order to narrow down the list the number of items per page as well as how many items to be display in a page:

ng-repeat="item in list | start: (currentPage - 1) * pageSize | limitTo: pageSize"

As mentioned earlier the start filter is used to slice the array based what page we are in. The limitTo filter is used to filter the number of items in the list.

Pagination Directive

Pagination directive is AngularUI directive.

  • ng-model: Current page number. First page is 1.
  • total-items: Total number of items in all pages. We set it to our list size.
  • items-per-page (Defaults: 10): Maximum number of items per page.
  • max-size (Defaults: null): Limit number for pagination size.

Refer to the documentation for the full list of options you have for the Pagination directive.


Browse your page in any browser and see the result:

    very easy to follow and can’t wait to read the next one(with filtering)
    Thank you Behnam.
    I met a small issue and found that since angular-bootstrap 1.x, all the directive now has a uib- prefix, eg. use uib-pagination instead of pagination, otherwise the pagination part won’t be displayed.

      Hi, you are welcome. I am happy this is helpful. You are right, this example uses an older version of ui-bootstraper. In the next post’s comment I have answered a question on how to make it work with the new ui-bootstraper version; using uib- prefix. Thanks for mention it here too.
