Powershell : Group Count

Hello Experts,

I have the following code for getting group count. It displays the count properly as 0 if it is empty, and displays the count properly if it contains more than 1 member,  and if the group has 1 member only, the count returns nothing,

(get-adgroupmember -identity testgroup1).count

Please assist.

Try this.
@(get-adgroupmember -identity testgroup1).count

Always good to ensure you have an array when checking the count.

Powershell had issues with counting 1.
Of the result was 1, there was no array and thus no count object.

Although this is pretty much only a workaround. Most likely you're running on an outdated powershell version. Update it to the latest.
