Search pagination

Hi Community,

I am working with a search function on my SS-powered Web site and am looking for a little guidance. I would like to paginate my search results. Currently, I have the following contents in m Page.php file with contents that I compiled mostly using the helpful documentation.

   function SearchForm(){
   $searchText = isset($this->Query) ? $this->Query : 'Search';
   $searchField = new TextField('Search', '', $searchText);
   $fields = new FieldSet($searchField);
   $actions = new FieldSet(
    new FormAction('results', 'Go', null, null, 'searchbut', true)
   return new SearchForm($this, 'SearchForm', $fields, $actions);
function results($data, $form){
$data = array(
'Results' => $form->getResults(),
'Query' => $form->getSearchQuery(),
'Title' => 'Search Results'
return $this->customise($data)->renderWith(array('Page_results', 'Page'));

I have discovered a page in the documentation called "searchcontext," which mentions pagination, but it does not provide an example that extends the code above. Instead, the pagination information reflects a different way of searching. Do I need to learn how to search using the searchcontext, or can I extend the code above somehow? I have tried a few various modifications to both the SS file and the PHP file to no avail.

Thanks in advance for any insight or help,
