IDataAccessAdapterGetDbCount Method (IEntityCollection2, IRelationPredicateBucket)
Gets the estimated number of objects returned by a query for objects to store in the entity collection passed in, using the filter and groupby clause specified. The number is estimated as duplicate objects can be present in the plain query results, but will be filtered out when the query result is transformed into objects.

Return Value

Type: Int32
the number of rows the query for the fields specified, using the filter, relations and groupbyClause specified.
This method performs a SELECT COUNT(*) FROM (actual query) and executes that as a scalar query. This construct is not supported on Firebird. You can try to achieve the same results by using GetScalar and AggregateFunction.CountRow, though those results can differ from the result returned by GetDbCount if you use a group by clause.
