ASP Paging with a difference

Hi guys,

I have a product list page that shows x pages of 6 products per page.  So if there is 60 products the paging will look like:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

This works fine.  However I don't want the links to get that 'wide'.  I want to only show up to 5 pages at once, i.e, if I was in the middle of the list, it would look like:

4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

An example of this is the Tiffany's website: http://tinyurl.com/679jc8

Any ideas how to go about this in classic ASP?

Thanks a lot

I have a function that I use to create the paging system and it seems like you've got the same thing so I won't bother you with that.  Specifically, what I did to limit the number of linked pages, I did this:

If varNoPages > strMaxPageWidth Then
      Dim varPageHalfwayPoint
      varPageHalfwayPoint = Fix(strMaxPageWidth / 2)
      If strMaxPageWidth Mod 2 > 0 Then
            varPageHalfwayPoint = varPageHalfwayPoint + 1
      End If
      If strCurrentPage < varPageHalfwayPoint Then
            varPageStart = 1
            varPageEnd = strMaxPageWidth
      Else
            If strCurrentPage > (varNoPages - (Fix(strMaxPageWidth / 2))) Then
                  varPageStart = varNoPages - strMaxPageWidth
            Else
                  varPageStart = strCurrentPage - (Fix(strMaxPageWidth / 2))
            End If
            If strCurrentPage > varNoPages - (Fix(strMaxPageWidth / 2)) Then
                  varPageEnd = varNoPages
            Else
                  varPageEnd = strCurrentPage + (Fix(strMaxPageWidth / 2))
            End If
      End If
Else
      varPageStart = 1
      varPageEnd = varNoPages
End If

One of the values passed during my function is strMaxPageWidth which specifies the maximum number of linked page items that should be displayed.  If the total number of pages (varNoPages) is greater than strMaxPageWidth,  the function finds the halfway point and then identifies the proper number of items to be displayed on each side of that point.
