I have Wraper class list which holds list of Records form 2 objects. This list Iam using in Page block table to show the data from both objects. Now I have to work on Pagination. For Pagination we have to use Apex StandardSetController in order to use its predefine methods. Problem: But While instantinating StandardSetController we need to pass SObject List. Butt in my case its Wrapper class list. Can any one suggest on this problem witn pagination?


You could create your own paginatation, this blog here walks you through writing your own pagination class:

/**This Paginate Class is the class that keeps track of all the pagination information */
    public class Paginate {
    public Integer index {get;set;}
    public Integer pageNum {get;set;}
    public Integer totalPage {get;set;}
    public Integer totalResults {get;set;}
    public List<Pager> pageList {get;set;}
    public Boolean showPrevious {get;set;}
    public Boolean showNext {get;set;}
    public Boolean isAll {get;set;}

    public Paginate(Integer listSize, Integer pageSize){
        this.totalResults = listSize;
        pageSize = (pageSize > 0)?pageSize:10;
        this.totalPage = (Integer)Math.ceil((Double)listSize / (Double)pageSize);
        this.pageNum = 1;
        this.index = 0;
        this.isAll = (listSize == pageSize)?true:false;

    public void updateNumbers(){
        this.pageList = new List<Pager>();
        for(Integer i = 1; i < (this.totalPage + 1); i++){
            Boolean b = (i == pageNum)?true:false;
            this.pageList.add(new Pager(i, b));
        this.showPrevious = (this.pageNum == 1)?false:true;
        this.showNext = (this.pageNum == this.totalPage)?false:true;
        this.index = this.pageNum - 1;

    public void decrement(){
        this.pageNum = this.pageNum - 1;

    public void increment(){

    public class Pager{
        public Integer pageNum {get;set;}
        public Boolean isActive {get;set;}

        public Pager(Integer num, Boolean active){
            this.pageNum = num;
            this.isActive = active;

controller example:

/**This is a sample controller with sample data of how to use the
    Paginate class*/
public with sharing class PaginationDemoController {
    public Paginate paginater {get;set;}
    public List<CustomClass> genericList{get;set;}
    public List<List<CustomClass>> fullGenericList{get;set;}

    public PaginationDemoController(){
        //Get the data we need to paginate
        List<CustomClass> resultsList = populateData();

        //Set the page size
        Integer pageSize = 10;

        //Create a new instance of Paginate passing in the overall size of
        //the list of data and the page size you want
        this.paginater = new Paginate(resultsList.size(), pageSize);

        //These lists hold the data
        this.fullGenericList = new List<List<CustomClass>>();
        this.genericList = new List<CustomClass>();

        //Break out the full list into a list of lists
        if(resultsList.size() > 0){
            List<CustomClass> tempCC = new List<CustomClass>();        
            Integer i = 0;
            for(CustomClass cc : resultsList){
                if(i == pageSize){
                    tempCC = new List<CustomClass>();
                    i = 0;

            //Gets the correct list of data to show on the page
            this.genericList = this.fullGenericList.get(this.paginater.index);

    public PageReference previousPage(){
        return changeData();

    public PageReference nextPage(){
        return changeData();

    public PageReference updatePage(){
        return changeData();

    public PageReference changeData(){
        this.genericList = this.fullGenericList.get(this.paginater.index);
        return null;

    public List<CustomClass> populateData(){
        List<CustomClass> customClassList = new List<CustomClass>();
        for(Integer i = 1; i < 50; i++){
            customClassList.add(new CustomClass(i, 'Name:  ' + String.valueOf(i)));
        return customClassList;

    public class CustomClass{
        public Integer num{get;set;}
        public String name{get;set;}

        public CustomClass(Integer num, String name){
            this.num = num;
            this.name = name;

page example:

<apex:page controller="PaginationDemoController">
    <apex:form >
        <apex:outputPanel id="mainPanel">
            <apex:outputPanel rendered="{!AND(IF(paginater.isAll, false, true), IF(paginater.totalPage == 1, false, true))}">
                <apex:outputText rendered="{!paginater.showPrevious}">
                    <apex:commandLink action="{!previousPage}" value="Prev" rerender="mainPanel" />
                <apex:repeat value="{!paginater.pageList}" var="pl">
                    <apex:outputText rendered="{!!pl.isActive}">
                        <apex:commandLink action="{!updatePage}" rerender="mainPanel">
                            <apex:param name="selectedPage" value="{!pl.pageNum}" assignTo="{!paginater.pageNum}" />
                    <apex:outputText rendered="{!pl.isActive}" value="{!pl.pageNum}" />

                <apex:outputText rendered="{!paginater.showNext}">
                    <apex:commandLink action="{!nextPage}" value="Next" rerender="mainPanel" />
            <apex:outputPanel id="dataPanel">
                <apex:repeat value="{!genericList}" var="gl">
                    {!gl.num}   <strong>{!gl.name}</strong><br/>
