I am using the silverstripe pagination recipe to return a result set of paginated items and have the pagination working fine.

I would like to try and create an endless pagination using Ajax that when the viewer reaches the bottom of the page the next DO resultset is appended to the current set so that the user doesn't have to hit a next button, but the full list of items will load as the user scrolls down the page.

So, rather than hitting next and having the whole page refresh to http://localhost:8888/products?start=15, products 15-30 will load with Ajax at the bottom of the current page.

I have the jquery down that triggers the Ajax call when the user reaches the bottom of the page. I just need to know how to make the silverstripe side work.

Thanks alot.

Take a look at the AJAX basics page

http://doc.silverstripe.org/old/recipes:ajax_basics

You'l need to crate a new template (ajaxSnippet) for your results page
