I have about 1000 items in a custom list. i want to retrieve 10 only from a certain position, (i know how to do this).

I also want to get the total in the list.

How would i do this? (this is for custom paging)

Have you tried getting the list and using SPList.Items.Count?

There is also an SPList.ItemCount property that includes folders as items in the count...

  • This needs to be selected before the query limits the list. Afterwards it acts as an amount with the RowLimit as the maximum amount.

  • @HughWood is this additional information or are you saying this isn't a valid answer? Nov 15, 2012 at 18:42
  • Not at all, I am saying that I am putting a caveat on Item Count. If it wasn't valid I would of down voted.

  • @HughWood definitely. I was just unsure where you were going with that. Nov 16, 2012 at 14:18
