I want a pagination to my options page of wordpress plugin?

MY DEMO

I want a pagination according to the results coming from wordpress database...This is all done on my options page of wordpress plugin..

My code to retrieve from database is as follows

$per_page=5;
$sql = "SELECT * FROM wp_dive ";
$result = $wpdb->get_results($sql_10) or die(mysql_error());
$length=count($result);
$pages = ceil($length/$per_page);
foreach( $result as $results ) 

    {
    $id=$results->id;
    $name= $results->name_cust;
    $gender= $results->gender_cust;
    $dob= $results->dob_cust;

<?php $html= "<div class=\"divContentBody\">";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsOrderNo\">". $id."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsName\">". $name."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsGender\">".$gender."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsDOB\">".  $dob ."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "</div>"?>
<?php
$data_html .=$html; 
 }

 ?> 

I m getting the data dynamically ..I just want to add pagination ..to show 5 entries on first page and accordingly ...

The native way of doing this is extending the class WP_List_Table and let WordPress handle all the specifics of the table display. I know it from the plugin Internal Link Check, by kaiser. The example bellow is a stripped version that performs a very simple SQL query.

First, we need a helper page (using PHP5.3+ anonymous functions):

add_action('admin_menu', function() 
{
    add_menu_page(
        'TE', 
        '<span style="color:#e57300;">Table Example</span>', 
        'edit_pages', 
        'table-example', 
        function() { 
            echo '<div class="wrap">';
            screen_icon('edit');
            echo '<h2>Table Example</h2>';
            new B5F_WP_Table(); 
            echo '</div>';
        },
        'http://sstatic.net/stackexchange/img/favicon.ico',
        1  // create before Dashboard menu item
    );
});

This is the end result:

And here the class that performs everything (note the need of importing the main class). You'll have to adjust the query and the table columns for your data.

if( is_admin() && !class_exists( 'WP_List_Table' ) )
    require_once( ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/class-wp-list-table.php' );

class B5F_WP_Table extends WP_List_Table
{
    private $order;
    private $orderby;
    private $posts_per_page = 5;

    public function __construct()
    {
        parent :: __construct( array(

            'plural'   => 'table examples',
            'ajax'     => true
        ) );
        $this->set_order();

Helper plugin to style the admin: WordPress Admin Style, by bueltge


Take this https://stackoverflow.com/a/16358219/1596547 and adopt it to your needs like:

$pagenum = isset( $_GET['pagenum'] ) ? absint( $_GET['pagenum'] ) : 1;

$limit = 5; // number of rows in page
$offset = ( $pagenum - 1 ) * $limit;
$total = $wpdb->get_var( "SELECT COUNT(`id`) FROM `wp_dive`" );
$num_of_pages = ceil( $total / $limit );
$result = $wpdb->get_results( "SELECT `id`,`name_cust`,`gender_cust`,`dob_cust` FROM `wp_dive` LIMIT $offset, $limit" );

$data_html = '';

foreach( $result as $results ) 

    {
    $id=$results->id;
    $name= $results->name_cust;
    $gender= $results->gender_cust;
    $dob= $results->dob_cust;
?>
<?php $html= "<div class=\"divContentBody\">";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsOrderNo\">". $id."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsName\">". $name."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsGender\">".$gender."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsDOB\">".  $dob ."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "</div>"?>
<?php
$data_html .=$html; 
 }
echo $data_html;


$page_links = paginate_links( array(
    'base' => add_query_arg( 'pagenum', '%#%' ),
    'format' => '',
    'prev_text' => __( '&laquo;', 'aag' ),
    'next_text' => __( '&raquo;', 'aag' ),
    'total' => $num_of_pages,
    'current' => $pagenum
) );

if ( $page_links ) {
    echo '<div class="tablenav"><div class="tablenav-pages" style="margin: 1em 0">' . 
$page_links . '</div></div>';
}

You are querying with posts_per_page, but in order to use pagination you also need to append the 'paged' parameter to your query.

See the WP Codex here:

http://codex.wordpress.org/Pagination#Adding_the_.22paged.22_parameter_to_a_query


<?php

global $wpdb;
$paged = isset( $_GET['paged'] ) ? (int) $_GET['paged'] : 1;

$limit = 10; // Row in a single
$offset = ( $paged - 1 ) * $limit;
$total = $wpdb->get_var( 'SELECT COUNT(`id`) FROM `wp_dive`' );
$num_of_pages = ceil( $total / $limit );
$result = $wpdb->get_results( "SELECT `id`,`name_cust`,`gender_cust`,`dob_cust` FROM `wp_dive` LIMIT $offset, $limit" );

$data_html = '';

foreach( $result as $results ) 

    {
    $id=$results->id;
    $name= $results->name_cust;
    $gender= $results->gender_cust;
    $dob= $results->dob_cust;
?>
<?php $html= "<div class=\"divContentBody\">";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsOrderNo\">". $id."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsName\">". $name."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsGender\">".$gender."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "<span class=\"clsDOB\">".  $dob ."</span>";?>
<?php $html .= "</div>"?>
<?php
$data_html .=$html; 
 }
echo $data_html;


$page_links = paginate_links( array(
    'base' => add_query_arg( 'paged', '%#%' ),
    'format' => '',
    'prev_text' => '&laquo;',
    'next_text' => '&raquo;',
    'total' => $total,
    'current' => $paged
) );

    echo '<div class="tablenav"><div class="tablenav-pages" style="margin: 1em 0">' .
