I have a paginated list of items. The user selects an item by clicking on a
checkbox. The checkbox selection, by default only applies to the items on
that page. So if you select 5 items on the first page and then navigate to
the second to select a few more, the items on the first page do not get
considered for any actions while still on the second page.
I'm working on an 'expert' tool, where the desire is to be able to select
items on multiple pages (assume there is no way to filter all of results on
the same page). The most obvious solution is to mod (using ajax) the
checkbox in such a way that it maintains the state across pages. Is there
anything else out there that would solve this in a better way?
