Recordset paging - show last page on page load

Recordset paging - show last page on page load

Hi there.

I have a standard repeat region, showing 10 entries per page. The dataset is ordered by date (ascending).
I am using the WA_MySQLi_RS() class to do this, the MySQLi recordset paging tool.

By default, the first page shown is the oldest date (the first record of the query). What I want to do is show the last page when my webpage first loads.
You may suggest that I "ORDER BY date DESC", but I don't want this. I still want ascending order, but just want to view the last page.

Is there an easy workaround you can suggest? A line of php that moves the index to the last page before I display / load the webpage?

Try adding this below your recordset code:

php:
<?php

if (!isset($_GET['pageNum_showRegister'])) {
    
$_GET['pageNum_showRegister'] = $showRegister->TotalPages;
    
$showRegister->execute();
}
?>

Hi Ray

It didn't work. For some reason, executing the $showRegister twice doesn't work. I managed to get the desired result by following your logic and adding a separate query. Not the most efficient coding though :-)

Perhaps you can add a ->MoveToLast function in future releases?

Thanks for your help. Very much appreciated!

if (!isset($_GET['pageNum_showRegister'])) {

$justForRows = new WA_MySQLi_RS("justForRows",$local);
$justForRows->setQuery("SELECT * FROM user1");
$justForRows->execute();

$_GET['pageNum_showRegister'] = ceil($justForRows->TotalRows/10)-1;

}
