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.

 virtual property bool CanRetrieveTotalRowCount { bool get(); };
public virtual bool CanRetrieveTotalRowCount { get; }
member this.CanRetrieveTotalRowCount : bool
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property CanRetrieveTotalRowCount As Boolean

Property Value


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.
