Hi

I have some code that searches on various fields on an Access DB. Everything works fine, however I would like to populate a label with the number of records found.

This is my code for the search:

Private Sub txtSearch_TextChanged_1(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles txtSearch.TextChanged

        Dim dvFilter As DataView = Nothing

        If TypeOf dgAssets.DataSource Is DataView Then
            dvFilter = CType(dgAssets.DataSource, DataView)
        ElseIf TypeOf dgAssets.DataSource Is DataTable Then
            dvFilter = CType(dgAssets.DataSource, DataTable).DefaultView
        End If

        If txtSearch.TextLength > 0 And RBEFCAssetTAG.Checked = True Then
            dvFilter.RowFilter = "EFCRef LIKE '" & txtSearch.Text & "*'"
        ElseIf txtSearch.TextLength > 0 And RBUser.Checked = True Then
            dvFilter.RowFilter = "User LIKE '" & txtSearch.Text & "*'"

        Else
            dvFilter.RowFilter = ""
        End If

        dgAssets.DataSource = dvFilter

    End Sub

Thanks

dvFilter.Count should contain the number of records in the dataview after the filters have been applied.
