I see, you used the DataFactory's that returns a IDataReader that does not expose that property


 public static CustomerListGetList()
        {
            CustomerList tempList = null;
            int intRows = 0;

            Database db = DatabaseFactory.CreateDatabase();
            DbCommand dbCommand = db.GetSqlStringCommand("spTest");
            dbCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

            using (IDataReader dataReader = db.ExecuteReader(dbCommand))
            {  
                tempList = new CustomerList();

                while (dataReader.Read())
                {
                    intRows ++;
                    tempList.Add(FillDataRecord(dataReader));
                }                
                dataReader.Close();
            }

            //check if the datareader has had rows here?
            if (intRows == 0)
            { // had no rows ... }

            return tempList;
        }
