A simple React pagination component

I had to do pagination in a react app today. Often times for things like this, it’s easier to write your own thing than to use a library. Here’s the Pager component I ended up with:

Pager.jsx

import React from 'react';
export const Pager = React.createClass({
render: function() {
const {
perPage,
totalRows,
pageNumber,
lastPageNumber,
query
} = this.props;
const checkDisabled = (change) => {
let newPage = pageNumber+change;
if ( newPage < 1 ) return true;
if ( newPage > lastPageNumber ) return true;
return false
}
const jumpToPage = (pageNo) => query({ perPage, showPageNumber: pageNo });
const changePage = (change) => (event) => jumpToPage(pageNumber+change);
return <span>
<span className="total">
total {totalRows} #{((pageNumber-1)*perPage) + 1}
</span>
<span className="pager">
<button disabled={checkDisabled(-1)} onClick={changePage(-1)}>prev</button>
<select value={pageNumber} onChange={({target:{value}})=>jumpToPage(value)}>
{ Array(lastPageNumber).fill().map((_,i)=><option key={i} value={i+1}>
page: {i+1}/{lastPageNumber}
</option>)}
</select>
<button disabled={checkDisabled(1)} onClick={changePage(1)}>next</button>
</span>
</span>;
}
})

This pager component calls the query prop function (a redux action, say) in response to previous and next buttons, and direct page selection, with an object like so { perPage: 10, showPageNumber: 1 }

Naturally, this being react, how this is used and what query does is out of scope, unknown and irrelevant, but here’s a little screenshot of the UI in which this is being used, for kicks:
