List pages in the Windows GUI

I know that with the Web GUI we have pages in Lists, capping the amount of rows you see to a certain amount. Now I'm trying to do that too in the Windows GUI for the project I'm working on because we sometimes have a huge list of maybe above 6000 rows.

In the Software Factory we can set a limit to how many rows are displayed, and even the page sizes. But it looks like the page size doesn't work for the Windows GUI.

How can I introduce list pages in the Windows GUI or is this not possible and can we only set a maximum?

Hi Mark,

No, paging in the list/grid of the Windows GUI is not supported.

In the Web and Mobile GUI we specially need these mechanisms to reduce the amount of generated html output containing the data wrapped in html to position and style the data in the front end.

Maybe think about a top statement in the Windows GUI with filter possibilities within the opened document. There are not many cases to think of where your users will navigate through thousands of records at once. Most of the times a subset is enough.

Kind regards,
