Show previous and next page with view using single category

When you use "embedded View" in a form with the option "show single category," you will find problems showing the following and previous pages with this same single category.

View member feedback to this tip.

When you use the resource "embedded View" in a Form with the option "show single category" you will find problems to show the following and previous pages with this same single category.
To solve this problem: You just have to create one form with a editable field "Query_String_Decoded" like the following.

 @Right(Query_String_Decoded;"&xyz =")
    In tab field properts HTML/field "Others", 
set  as = type=hidden 
    In "embedded View" choose a View you want to show
    In "show single category" = Query_String_Decoded 
    In "HTML Body attibutes" = "onclick='myclick() '" 
    In "JS Header" adds the function:  

function myclick() {
 tag = source.tagName;
 if (tag == 'A') {
   if (source.href.indexOf('&Start')> 0){
     source.href = source.href+'&xyz='+

Always call the form with "?openform&xyz=myfirtcategory "


Wouldn't it be easier to specify the single category by opening the form with the relevant "&RestrictToCategory" added to the open form URL? I haven't been able to prove it, but I'm sure if you do it this way that you wouldn't have a problem with next and previous in the first place.
