How can find out if a datalist control has return no results?

I have a datalist control that when some text box fields are filled out, a certain sql statement is executed and a query is populated.  

The results appear when the person hits a search that can populate results.  If there are no results to return i get no action.  I want to be able to check if the datalist rendered results or not.  
Protected Sub Search()
 
        Me.uxSearchDataList.DataSourceID = Me.uxSearchSqlDataSource.ID
 
        Dim sql as string = ""
 
        ..............
 
        Me.uxSearchSqlDataSource.SelectCommand = sql
 
    End Sub
 
    Protected Sub uxSearchButton_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.ImageClickEventArgs)
 
        Search()
 
    End Sub

Have you tried counting the datalist items?

        If uxSearchDataList.Items.Count = 0 Then
            'No items in datalist
        End If
0
