Since: DataTables 1.10

Pagination button display options.


The pagination option of DataTables will display a pagination control below the table (by default, its position can be changed using dom and CSS) with buttons that the end user can use to navigate the pages of the table. Which buttons are shown in the pagination control are defined by the option given here.

DataTables has six built-in paging button arrangements:

  • numbers - Page number buttons only (1.10.8)
  • simple - 'Previous' and 'Next' buttons only
  • simple_numbers - 'Previous' and 'Next' buttons, plus page numbers
  • full - 'First', 'Previous', 'Next' and 'Last' buttons
  • full_numbers - 'First', 'Previous', 'Next' and 'Last' buttons, plus page numbers
  • first_last_numbers - 'First' and 'Last' buttons, plus page numbers

Further methods can be added using plug-ins.


This option can be given in the following type(s):


  • Value: simple_numbers


Use the full_numbers type of pagination control:

$('#example').dataTable( {
  "pagingType": "full_numbers"
} );
