I am databinding a GridView to a DataTable, via an ObjectDataSource.  I have enabled pagination and would like to display pagination data on the GUI as follows:

Displaying [Index of 1st Record on GridView.Page] - [Index of last Record on GridView.Page] of [GridView's total record count] records.

I can calculate the Index of the 1st record:
((this.GridView1.PageIndex + 1) * this.GridView1.PageSize) - (this.GridView1.PageSize - 1);

I can calcualte the Index of the Last Record displayed on the current Page:
((this.GridView1.PageIndex + 1) * this.GridView1.PageSize);

How can I calculate the total record count?

Thanks,

PJ

Can you use the dataTable?

string totalNumberOfRows = DataTable.Rows.Count.ToString();

Should give you the total number of rows.

here's what you asked...
--- Code behind file ---

Public Partial Class GridView

    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
 

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
 

    End Sub
 

    Private Sub GridView1_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles GridView1.DataBound

        CType(GridView1.FooterRow.FindControl("Label1"), Label).Text = GridView1.Rows.Count
 

    End Sub

End Class

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

You can change the code behind with what's bellow.  It work
Public Partial Class GridView

    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
 

    Private RecordsCount As Long
 
 

    Private Sub GridView1_DataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles GridView1.DataBound

        CType(GridView1.FooterRow.FindControl("Label1"), Label).Text = RecordsCount

    End Sub
 
 

    Private Sub ds1_Selected(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.SqlDataSourceStatusEventArgs) Handles ds1.Selected

        RecordsCount = e.AffectedRows

    End Sub

End Class

Thanks for all the feed back!  After reviewing your comments and tinkering a bit I came up with this, which works:

protected void AllStoriesGridView_DataBound(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {    
            PaginationRecordCountLabel.Visible = (AllStoriesGridView.Rows.Count > 0);

            string recordCountFormatString = "Displaying records {0}-{1} out of {2}.";

            ObjectDataSource ods = (ObjectDataSource)AllStoriesGridView.DataSourceObject;
            int totalRowsInDataSource = (ods.Select() as DataView).Count;

            int firstRecordOnPageIndex = ((AllStoriesGridView.PageIndex + 1) * AllStoriesGridView.PageSize) - AllStoriesGridView.PageSize + 1;
            int lastRecordOnPageIndex;

            if (((AllStoriesGridView.PageIndex + 1) * AllStoriesGridView.PageSize) > totalRowsInDataSource)
            {
                lastRecordOnPageIndex = totalRowsInDataSource;
            }
            else
            {
                lastRecordOnPageIndex = ((AllStoriesGridView.PageIndex + 1) * AllStoriesGridView.PageSize);
            }            

            PaginationRecordCountLabel.Text = string.Format(recordCountFormatString,
                firstRecordOnPageIndex,
                lastRecordOnPageIndex,
                totalRowsInDataSource);
}


cdebel and urir10 I tried this out too:

 protected void AllStoriesDataSource_Selected(object sender, ObjectDataSourceStatusEventArgs e)
        {
            int totalRowsInDataSource = (e.ReturnValue as DataTable).Rows.Count;
        }

Which is similiar to what the two of you suggested.  However, this doesn't take into account any filtering done on the ObjectDataSource, which, granted, wasn't part of my original problem description.  It does, however, return the number of rows being returned from the DB.

I also looked at e.AffectedRows (where e is ObjectDataSourceStatusEventArgs), and it always returned -1 for some reason.  Might be some odd difference between ObjectDataSources and SqlDataSources.  

Regardless, thank you both for the assistance.
