Now I receive children number using this code:

$currentCategory = $this->getCurrentCategory();
$childrenCount = $currentCategory->getChildrenCount();

But it counts both enabled and disabled children.

Do you know method that counts only enabled children, or I have to filter them in block?

You can use like,

$currentCategory = $this->getCurrentCategory();
echo count($childCategory);
  • Just in case you can also call count as method $childCategory->count();!

  • If you only care about the number of categories, you should better use $childCategory->getSize() to not load the full collection.
