Is it possible to get recordcount on a cfgrid? Dynamically?

I have a cfgrid on a page that is built with some default query arguments. On that page I have a form that I allow users to to enter information in and then submit. When the form is submitted I send some arguments to the cfgrid query and display the grid with the new query requirements. I am using an HTML cfgrid with bind.

Is is possible to write the recordcount of the query to the page dynamically? When a user "filters" items in the grid I'd like the recordcount to update as well.

My grid/query are all very basic but if some example code is needed please let me know.

Thank you.

Can you post a screen shot? Because iirc, cfgrid should do that automatically.

cfgrid only gives the pages, for example: 1 of 3 not a record count.

I found this post but it doens't seem to work... even when I use getStore instead of getDataSource.

Thanks again.

Some of the cfgrid/javascript stuff changed between 8/9. You're using CF9 right?

The code in that link works for me.

Yes, I am using CF9. This seems to work but I get a script error in IE. "Object expected" on this line in the ext-all.js script "var d=n.dom.firstChild.offsetWidth;"

Do you also get this script error in IE? I looked around online and I find that everyone has this problem but I can't find a solution.

No, I typically use FF.  I cannot test it now, but will try it w/IE later.

everyone has this problem

Everyone meaning those using CFGRID or even people using extJS? If it's the latter, then it may be an EXT bug.

I found the solution you posted in a few other places and it seems like many people report having the same problem. I can't seem to find a work-around. Are there any other ways to get the record count of a grid - possibly outside of the bottom toolbar where this one puts it?

Thanks again.

This solution works but produces a javascript error in the ext .js

Finally got a chance to test with IE, and got the same error. IE is annoying sometimes... Anyway:

I saw an example (somewhere?) of how to use a title bar. But it only shows the total records. Not sure how to get the current range working ie showing records x - y

               (Can't test it right now)

            <script  type="text/javascript">
                  var gridRender = function()
                  {
                             grid = ColdFusion.Grid.getGridObject('myGrid');
                             grid.store.on('load', function( ds ) {
                                 grid.setTitle('Total records: '+ grid.store.getTotalCount());
                             });
                         };  
            </script>
                ....
               <cfgrid title=""  ...rest of attributes >
                ....
