Rapide Paginator Control

The next release of Rapide sees the introduction of a new widget - the Paginator control.

The Paginator can be used to control navigation between pages for a grid/row template listbox and also for an entire window or primary dialog box.

For a listbox, you simply specify that the Paginator control is to be used and the Rapide runtime will automatically populate the control with the number of pages and the current page indicator.

For a primary window/dialog box, you can specify the placement of the control and bind it to two numeric views - one that specifies the number of pages and the second the current page.

When the user swipes between pages, an event is called in the procedure step and the designer can decide how to process the page change event, for example by changing the data displayed.

In the example below, the user can swipe between different products, with the Paginator control at the bottom giving them a visual indicator of how many products are available.
