// Create a Pager object with your own options
$pager =& Pager::factory($options);

// fill() sets the $pager object up, according to your data and settings

// Render the paging links
echo $pager->links;

require_once 'HTML/QuickForm.php';

// Create an empty form with your settings
$form = new HTML_QuickForm('myForm''POST');

// Customize it, add a header, text field, etc..
$form->addElement('header'null'Search & Sort Form Example');
$form->addElement('text''my_search''Search for:');

// Let the datagrid add sort fields, radio style
$options = array('directionStyle' => 'radio');
