in case you need to create unique URL's (e.g. for bookmarking) you could find the current document in the view and use the getPrevDocument / getNextDocument method


                <xp:link escape="true" text="Previous" id="link4"><xp:eventHandler event="onclick" submit="true" refreshMode="complete">
        <xp:openPage name="/peopleDoc.xsp" target="openDocument">

            <xp:this.documentId><![CDATA[#{javascript:var v:NotesView = database.getView("People");
var doc:NotesDocument = v.getDocumentByKey(person.getDocument().getUniversalID());
if (doc == null) {
    var tmpdoc = v.getPrevDocument(doc);
    doc = tmpdoc;
    return doc.getUniversalID();


In this example the first sorted column is the view contains the document unique id but of course you can create your own "unique key" e.g. firstname + lastname
