Zend Developer Zone:
Paging and Sorting Data with Zend Framework, Doctrine and PEAR (part 1)
December 11, 2009 @ 09:43:29

On the Zend Developer Zone there's the first part of a series looking at pagination and sorting of data with the combination of the Zend Framework, Doctrine and PEAR.

When building database-backed applications, one of the important problems for a developer or user interface engineer involves making large data sets more manageable by, and therefore more useful to, application users. [...] Back in the good old days, adding pagination to a PHP application was mostly a manual task, involving offset calculations and custom query generation. In recent years, the task has become significantly simpler, mostly due to the presence of ready-made pagination components in most common frameworks.

His tutorial uses the Zend Framework, Doctrine and the Pager, MDB2 and Structures_Datagrid PEAR packages. He starts with a basic select and format kind of example to show a few lines per page. To improve it (for larger data sets) he shows how to use the Zend_Paginator to only grab the rows needed for the page. Finally, he adds in code to allow for column sorting, making it easy to reorganize the results how you'd like.
