	This plug-in enables the  MergeBlock() method to display only a part of the records, instead of all records. Displayed records are those corresponding to a page number, like if the record set was split by pages having the same size.<br>
  Note: when you call the plug-in command, it activates the ByPage mode only for one  MergeBlock() call. Other MergBlock() calls  won't have the ByPage mode until you call the plug-in just before them.<br>
  <br>
  <span class="attention">Important remark:</span> In most of cases, the ByPage mode  costs as much process time as for the normal mode with the same query. This is explained in the chapter &quot;how the ByPage plug-in works?&quot; above. <br>
  <br>
  <span class="title-1b">Requirement:</span> include the file <span class="tbsname">'tbs_plugin_bypage.php'</span>. 
  This can be after the TBS object variable is created. <br>

  <br>
  <span class="title-1c">How the ByPage plug-in works ?<br> 
  </span><span class="attention">It's important to notice that this plug-in won't makes the query to run faster.</span> Because all database systems don't have a LIMIT clause for SELECT queries, and because all  queries are not SELECT queries then the plug-in must let the query as is without inserting any LIMIT clause by itself. Thus, the ByPage plug-in just sends the query, reads all records in order, starts to display records when the beginning of the page is reached, and stops to read and display  when the end of the  page is reached. <br>
  That's why <span class="attention">the ByPage plug-in is not convenient to display a page among a large number of records.</span> It's better to use the LIMIT clause of your database system instead (or other  native clause for limiting data).<br>
  <br>
  <span class="title-1c">How to use argument RecCount ?</span> <br>
  You should use RecCount if you need the MergeBlock() method to return the real total number of record (this can be useful when you need to display the page of data noticing the total number of records). In the normal mode, the MergeBlock()
  method return the total number of records, but in the ByPage mode, it return the number of the last read record, this can be different. But RecCount enables MergBlock() to whether makes a real count or to trust your value.<br>

  The Cache System enables you to create, load, update or delete a cache file identified by <span class="txt-code"><span class="opt-name">CacheId</span></span>. There is also an Automatic Mode that let the System manage those actions depending to a max-age of the cache file. <br>

But you can change those bounds using parameter <span class="opt-name">selbounds.</span>  It enables you   to change the search zone for items to select by indicating an HTML tag type.<br>

<div class="norm">This plug-in enables the MergeBlock() method to display data on  fly. This means that the result of the merge will be displayed progressively  during the execution of MergeBlock(). At the end of the MergeBlock(), only the part of the template after the block will remain. You steel have to use the Show() method for this ending part. <br>
  Notice: when you call the plug-in command, it activates the OnFly mode only for one  MergeBlock() call. Other MergBlock() calls won't have the OnFly mode until you call the plug-in just before them.<br>
      <br>
      You have to take care that the OnFly mode will cost much more time execution, because several small echo() commands always cost more time than a single big one. Despite this loss of execution time, the OnFly mode can be a smart issue when you have a very large number of records  to display because the user can start the read the data before it ends.<br>
