loadPage( )

Loads the specified page.


The loadPage() function returns a Promise that is resolved to an array of the specified page's items when:

  • The current item is saved in the collection (if necessary).
  • The specified page of data is loaded.
  • Any connected elements have been updated with the new data.
  • The current item is updated to the first item in the loaded page.

The indices of the dataset's pages start at 1.


  • A dataset needs to load its data before you call its loadPage() function.

    Usually a dataset finishes loading a short time after the page it is on finishes loading. So if you call loadPage() inside the page’s onReady() event handler, the dataset might not be ready yet.

    To call loadPage() as soon as possible after a page loads, use the dataset's onReady() function inside the page’s onReady() event handler to ensure that both the page and the dataset have finished loading.

  • When using a read-write dataset and linked input elements, calling any of the following functions will save any changes made in the linked input elements.


function loadPage(pageIndex: number): Promise<Array<Object>>

loadPage Parameters


The index of the page to load.


Fulfilled - When the specified page has been loaded and any connected elements have been updated. Rejected - An error message.
