I would like to implement paging in sharepoint 2013, so I would like to get current list item count first, then do the paging so I can tell users: 1-30 of 400 items, in my paging.

Can I do this in batching so i make a request first to get item count, then get top 30 items in my list in the same request?


To implemente pagination on this rest api is not that simple, you need to do some tweaks.

Default URL - "/sites/dev/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('StudentsList')/items?&$top=5";

For this go through the response of first REST Ajax call. If you read each property carefully you will get answer for pagination. Properly "__next" is nothing but the REST url for next page :). Is it simple? Yes. So use "data.d.__next" to get next page items. REST service always returns this property whenever there is possible next set of items otherwise returns null.

Below is what url you will get

To get total count you need to make /itemCount rest call.

Adjust your logic to divide data in pagination and use _next attribute to get next set of data.

  • This doesn't answer my question. I know all of this. I am asking about a way to make the 2 calls in the same request. I know __next and itemCount. Is there a way to do both of them in the same request? thanks
