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.
Don't be afraid of queries. Do both.
