is it possible to get the count of unread items in list like the mailbox?

in mailbox it shows the number of unread emails besides inbox word,

can I do the same count behavior for the unread items in discussion board list per each user and show the count in HTML div tag


Yes, it is possible.

Reference: MSDN Article

In order to get the count of unread items, set a counter just after the unreadIDs+=";"+oListItem.get_item("ID")+";"; line of code in the above link and then append the counter to the HTML div using jQuery as: $("#<div id>").append("<b>" + count + "</b>");
