DataView Row Count after Filtering Data in C# ASP.NET

DataView Row Count after Filtering Data in C# ASP.NET

In this post let’s see how we can count the number of Rows in a filtered DataView.

DataView Row Count after Filtering Data in C# ASP.NET

Syntax for DataView Row Count after filter :

DataViewName.Count;

The “Count” will retrieve the number of records in System.Data.DataView after filtering the Data in it. It will return the value as int, DataViewName.Count.ToString() will convert it to String value.

Usage : 

lblCount.Text = “Total record(s) : ” + dv.Count.ToString(); // no. of records, dv is my DataView name or Id

Example :

I’m using NorthWind Database for this project. See this post, how you can install NorthWind Database on SQL Server Database.
