Creates a navigation bar.


formId. Specifies the name of the form associated. The default form will be used if the attribute is left empty. If this tag is used without a form, this attribute must be set as a reference to the search tag.

type. Specifies the type of navigation bar. Valid inputs are "full," "previous," and "next." A full navigation bar looks like this: previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 next, where 5 is currently selected. The number of "page number" links is determined by the "offset" attribute and the number of pages available.

caption. Only necessary if type is previous or next and the default text is not wanted. Caption can be any HTML.

offset. Specifies the number of page links around the selected page. For example, if offset=2, the sample bar above would look like this: previous 3 4 5 6 7 next . Only required for type "full."
