With large categorized views, sometimes Web users would like the option of navigating to the last page of a view.
To accomplish this, we used the following steps:
1. Added a hidden field using the CGI variable of 'http_referer' into the $$ViewTemplateDefault
2. Added a hotspot to the template that called an agent.
The agent uses 'count=view.toplevelentrycount' to get the document count on the views. It then uses http_referer in the URL, adds the count minus 20 to redirect the page to the last page.
Initially we tried to use the 'path_info' variable but the 'path_info' would append the 'click' event to the path string.
This works great with non-categorized views too.
