I have a large list of items and have set the view to return 100 items per page. Is there a way to show the page navigation i.e. "101-200" at the top of each page? I know the page navigation is at the bottom, but it would be helpful to also show it at the top of each page. I have tried to search for this answer but am afraid I am not using the correct terms as my search results do not speak to this specific issue. Any assistance or direction would be greatly appreciated.

  • What version of SharePoint is this for? – Graham May 13 '15 at 20:24

Generally in SharePoint 2010 list view is customized via XSLT based approach. Since pagingButtons template is used for rendering pager, below is demonstrated how customize list view to render an additional pager on top of list view.


1)Create a custom list view template and save it as ViewWithPagingButtonsonTop.xsl file

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:x="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
  version="1.0" exclude-result-prefixes="xsl msxsl ddwrt x d asp __designer SharePoint ddwrt2"
  <xsl:import href="/_layouts/xsl/main.xsl"/>
  <xsl:output method="html" indent="no"/>
  <xsl:template name="ViewWithPagingButtonsOnTop" mode="RootTemplate" match="View" ddwrt:dvt_mode="root">
    <xsl:call-template name="pagingButtons" /> <!-- render pager on top -->
    <xsl:call-template name="View_Default_RootTemplate"/>

The custom template is intended for rendering pager on top of list view

2)Upload the specified file into Style Library under XSL Style Sheets folder

3)Open the page where list view resides in Edit mode and specify /Style Library/XSL Style Sheets/ViewWithPagingButtonsonTop.xsl value for XSL Link property of XLV web part as shown belowenter image description here

4)Save changes

This MSDN question has an answer to that with an edit to the AllItems.aspx page moving the ms-paging element around in the XSLT.

Open you site in designer and go to list folder. Select the particular list and check out the AllItems.aspx page.

Right Click on list design and click "Convert to XSLT view". Just find below tag
