Quick first, previous, next, last, and page buttons for pagination control of another component (such as <b-table>).

    <b-pagination size="md" :total-rows="100" v-model="currentPage" :per-page="10">

    <b-pagination size="sm" :total-rows="100" v-model="currentPage" :per-page="10">

    <b-pagination size="lg" :total-rows="100" v-model="currentPage" :per-page="10">

    <div>currentPage: {{currentPage}}</div>

export default {
  data () {
    return {
      currentPage: 3

<!-- pagination-1.vue -->


<b-pagination> is a custom input component that provides a current page number input control. The value should be bound via v-model in your app. Page numbers are indexed from 1. The number of pages is computed from the provided prop values for total-rows and per-page.


<b-pagination> supports several props that allow you to customize the appearance.

Prop Description
limit Limit the maximum number of displayed page buttons (including ellipsis if present, and excluding first/prev/next/last buttons)
total-rows The total number of records in your data
per-page The maximum number of data records per page
first-text The "goto first page" button text (html supported)
prev-text The "goto previous page" button text (html supported)
next-text The "goto next page" button text (html supported)
last-text The "goto last page" button text (html supported)
ellipsis-text the ... indicator text (html supported)
hide-ellipsis never show ellipsis indicators
hide-goto-end-buttons never display goto first/last buttons

Ellipsis inidcator(s) will only be ever shown at the front and/or end of the page number buttons. For limit values less than or equal to 3, the ellipsis indicator(s) will never be shown for practical display reasons.


By default the pagination component is left aligned. Change the alignment to center or right (right is an alias for end) by setting the prop align to the appropriate value.

    <h6>Left alignment (default)</h6>
    <b-pagination :total-rows="100" v-model="currentPage" :per-page="10">

    <h6>Center alignment</h6>
    <b-pagination align="center" :total-rows="100" v-model="currentPage" :per-page="10">

    <h6>Right (end) alignment</h6>
    <b-pagination align="right" :total-rows="100" v-model="currentPage" :per-page="10">

    <div>currentPage: {{currentPage}}</div>

export default {
  data () {
    return {
      currentPage: 3

<!-- pagination-2.vue -->

Small screen support

On smaller screens (i.e. mobile), some of the <b-pagination> buttons will be hidden to minimize the potential of the pagination interface wrapping onto multiple lines:

  • The ellipsis indicators will be hidden on screens xs and smaller.
  • Page number buttons will be limited to a maximum of 3 visible on xs screens and smaller.

This ensures that no more than 3 page number buttons are visible, along with the goto first, prev, next, and last buttons.


The <b-pagination> component provides many features to support assistive technology users, such as aria- attributes and keyboard navigation.


When pagination is controling another component on the page (such as <b-table>), set the aria-controls prop to the id of the element it is controling. This will help non-sighted users know what component is being updated/controlled.

ARIA labels

<b-pagination> provides various *-label-* props which are used to set the aria-label attributes on the various elements within the component, which will help users of assistive technology.

Prop aria-label content default
label-first-page "Goto first page"
label-prev-page "Goto previous page"
label-next-page "Goto next page"
label-last-page "Goto last page"
label-page "Goto page", appended with the page number
aria-label "Pagination", applied to the outer pagination container

Keyboard navigation support

<b-pagination> supports keyboard navigation out of the box.

  • Tabbing into the pagination component will autofocus the current page button
  • LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys will focus the previous and next buttons in the page list, respectively, and ENTER or SPACE keys will select (click) the focused page button


<b-pagination> provides two events that are emitted on the component:

  • input is emitted anytime the current page changes (either programmatically or via user interaction)
  • change is emitted only when the current page changes based on user interaction

Both events provide the single argument of the current page number (starting from 1)

For navigation based pagination, please see the <b-pagination-nav> component.
