A Connection can be extended in multiple ways:

  • Fields representing meta information on a entity relationship can be added
  • PageInfo itself can be enhanced
  • Arguments for filtering or ordering can be applied

In this lesson we walk through all of them to demonstrate the flexibility of the Connection Specification.

Hi Nic, thanks for the course, I really enjoyed.

One question, how to display the page number in the pagination bar, like 3,4,5,6,7,8? I found there is no way we can get the information from.

Thanks, Ron

Hey Ron, you are correct! On top of my mind I probably would extend the PageInfo with another field: currentPageNumber.

Then you either can:

  1. Calculate the other page numbers
  2. Extend PaginationEntry with the field pageNumber

I hope that helps
