When Paged is set to TRUE, a PagedRowset element must be implemented. Otherwise, the server provides a generic implementation of a paged rowset that is defined in the STDVIEW.XML file.

If Paged is not TRUE and the row limit is exceeded, the server renders a RowLimitExceeded element in the view if this element is specified. Otherwise, the default behavior is to give no indication to the user that the row limit has been exceeded.

If Paged is TRUE, the number of items per page will be displayed, and a Next button will provide a link to the next set of items.


The following line sets 100 as the row limit and specifies that a link be provided to see items that exceed the limit.

<RowLimit Paged="TRUE">100</RowLimit>
