How to count the number of lines in a jqGrid?


How do I count the number of rows in a jqGrid?

To clarify, there is not much data involved so the grid is pulling all of its data back from the server in a single query, instead of using pagination.

jQuery("#myGrid").jqGrid('getGridParam', 'records');


Note there are two parameters to determine record count:



Readonly property. Gives the number of records returned as a result of a query to the server.



Readonly property. Determines the exact number of rows in the grid. Do not confuse this with records parameter. Although in many cases they may be equal, there are cases where they are not. For example, if you define rowNum to be 15, but the request to the server returns 20 records, the records parameter will be 20, but the reccount parameter will be 15 (the grid you will have 15 records and not 20).
