DetailsView.DataItemCount Property

Gets the number of items in the underlying data source.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public int DataItemCount { get; }
/** @property */
public int get_DataItemCount ()

public function get DataItemCount () : int

Not applicable.

Property Value

The number of items in the underlying data source.

When the paging feature is enabled (by setting the AllowPaging property to true), use the DataItemCount property to determine the total number of records in the underlying data source.

NoteNote:

Because the DetailsView control displays only one record at a time, this value also corresponds to the total number of pages required to display every record in the data source.

To determine the index of the current record from the underlying data source, use the DataItemIndex property.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DataItemCount property to determine the number of items in the data source. This value is used to display the page count in a Label control contained within a custom pager row.

      // Get the pager row.
      DetailsViewRow pagerRow = CustomerDetailView.BottomPagerRow;

      // Get the Label controls that display the current page information 
      // from the pager row.
      Label pageNum = (Label)pagerRow.Cells[0].FindControl("PageNumberLabel");
      Label totalNum = (Label)pagerRow.Cells[0].FindControl("TotalPagesLabel");

      if ((pageNum != null) && (totalNum != null))
      {
          // Update the Label controls with the current page values.
          int page = CustomerDetailView.DataItemIndex + 1;
          int count = CustomerDetailView.DataItemCount;

          pageNum.Text = page.ToString();
          totalNum.Text = count.ToString();
      }
    }
