I want to fetch Views total number of records in page.tpl.php before views.tpl called. Is it possible to fetch that row total before views rendered? I am also using contextual filter for this view. Views have page type display.

I have also used module views_record_count. but this will print total number of records on Views header or footer. (Not outside of views)

  • I don't think it's possible before the view is rendered. You can always use css to move the count up from your view's header, if that's what you are looking for. – No Sssweat Jun 18 '15 at 23:58
  • Thanks for reply I have also tried to replicate total rows count div from views header See this – Firoz Sabaliya Jun 19 '15 at 11:02

You could use this code to print the count.


$view = views_get_view( 'test' );
$view->set_arguments( array( 1, 2, 3 ) );
$count = count( $view->result );
print $count;
