      Hi, I want to set current page number in datascroller, eg.
      I want to browse table result starting from the 5th page, not as usual from the first one.
      I don't know how to do it :(. Do You know?

          You can do this from 2 way.

          First, you can use Jsf binding.

          Second, you can manipulate the first attribute of datatable.

          in this example datascroller always start from last page

           <rich:dataTable value="#{mybean.list}" var="var" id="testTable" rows="#{mybean.ROW_COUNT_OF_PAGING}" first="#{mybean.firsRowNumberOfDataTable}">

          in the bean

           private Integer ROW_COUNT_OF_PAGING=20;
           private Integer firsRowNumberOfDataTable;
           public void reRenderDataTable(){
           firsRowNumberOfDataTable=list.size() % ROW_COUNT_OF_PAGING==0 ?(list.size()<ROW_COUNT_OF_PAGING ? 0 :list.size()-ROW_COUNT_OF_PAGING):list.size()-(list.size() %ROW_COUNT_OF_PAGING);
           public Integer getFirsRowNumberOfDataTable() {
           return firsRowNumberOfDataTable;
           public Integer getROW_COUNT_OF_PAGING() {
           return ROW_COUNT_OF_PAGING;
