DataSourceSelectArguments.RetrieveTotalRowCount Property


Gets or sets a value indicating whether a data source control should retrieve a count of all the data rows during a data retrieval operation.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public bool RetrieveTotalRowCount { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the data source control should retrieve a total data row count; otherwise, false.

The RetrieveTotalRowCount property supports paging scenarios. Set this property to true to request a total row count from the data source control during the data-retrieval operation. Check the DataSourceView.CanRetrieveTotalRowCount property to determine whether a data source view supports retrieving a total row count. If the data source supports it, the TotalRowCount property is set by the data source control during the course of a data retrieval operation and the total data row count is returned in the TotalRowCount property, much as a value is returned in an output parameter of a method.


If any of the DataSourceSelectArguments properties are set, but the currently bound data source control does not support the requested capability, an InvalidOperationException exception is thrown when the DataSourceSelectArguments.RaiseUnsupportedCapabilitiesError(DataSourceView) method is called.
