CanRetrieveTotalRowCount Property

DataSourceView.CanRetrieveTotalRowCount Property


Gets a value indicating whether the DataSourceView object associated with the current DataSourceControl object supports retrieving the total number of data rows, instead of the data.

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

public virtual bool CanRetrieveTotalRowCount { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the operation is supported; otherwise, false. The base class implementation returns false.

A data-bound control can request a total row count by adding the DataSourceCapabilities.RetrieveTotalRowCount field to the System.Web.UI.DataSourceSelectArguments object passed to the ExecuteSelect method. If a data-bound control requests a total row count, but the CanRetrieveTotalRowCount property returns false, the data source view throws an exception.
