This topic explains how to create functionality for pagination (skip and take), for limiting the display of search results in Optimizely Search & Navigation.
How it works
By default, the number of returned documents is limited to 10,000 for a single search, which is the normal behavior for many search engines. Using pagination ("skip and take"), you can display a maximum of 10 pages, with a maximum of 1,000 documents per page by default.
Similar to LINQ, the Optimizely Search & Navigation .NET API has Skip and Take methods to bypass (Skip) the number of search results, and specify how many search results should be returned (Take).
The maximum value that can be specified using the Take method is 1,000. In other words, Take(1001) or Take(int.MaxValue) throws an exception. If more than a thousand result items are needed, use multiple search requests.
The following example uses the Skip and Take methods for pagination.
string searchQuery = //From query string or similar int page = //From query string or similar int pageSize = 15; client.Search<BlogPost>() .For(searchQuery) .Skip((page - 1)*pageSize) .Take(pageSize) .GetResult();
