Clistview - Always Show Pager

The design of the website I am creating needs to have the pager always displayed - even when there is only one page of results. Otherwise it ends up with a big blank area that does not look good.

The pager would just simply show page number 1 highlighted (prev/next buttons inactive).

Is this possible to do?

you probably have to override the CListView#renderPager and check if there are 0 items the again override pager itemCount and render the pager since it checks for the itemCount
