Tutorial :Linq to SQL - Returning two values with one query



Question:

Is it possible to return a single value and an enumerable collection using LINQ to SQL?

The problem is, I'm trying to do paging across a large recordset. I only want to return 10 rows at a time so I'm using .Skip(20).Take(10) approach.

However I need to know the total number of records so I can show an appropriate page x of y.

Trying to avoid two separate queries.

Thanks


Solution:1

Don't be afraid of queries. Do both.


Solution:2

I came across this exact same issue and ended up with

var q = from i in tableName select i;    int total = q.Count();    foreach(var obj in q.Skip(20).Take(10))  {      ...  }  

It really wasn't a problem at all
