    I need to get the total number of items/records returned into GridView.

    If I just do myGridView.Rows.Count, then it just returns me the total number
    of items on the page.

    But if I have, 10 pages (10 records per page) and 98 records total,
    Rows.Count will return me 10 on the first 9 pages, and 8, on the last page.

    But, I need to somehow get access to total record count which is 98. What
    is the proper/easy way to accomplish that?

    The easy way is to return the count as an extra column in your data
    Like you I'm also waiting to hear the proper way.

  3. I'd suggest you get the row count from the underlying data source. Perhaps
    you're using a DataSet? If so, you'd check MyDataSet.Tables[0].Rows.Count
