The image below contains a FormAction:

which enables the user to use the row-edit function; it will be displayed like this:

Scrolling through several pages inside a List-Controller is done via "First", "Previous", "Next", and "Last" icon-buttons (see image below). The buttons are generated automatically and the attribute pagesize=... is responsible for the number of lines in the list.

After pressing the delete button, a modal form will open on top of the list, and the user can assign the data deletion.
