Use this


For getSize() the collection is not loaded. For count() it is.

Check the difference between getSize() and count() from here Difference between getSize() and count() on collection

  • the getCount() is used in custom table collection, but here i wrote the query with Magento table, that's why i am using getSize(),then i have a pagination issues also with the group by query, for your further reference i attached the screen.

  • getSize() does not load the collection for records that come from the data base. you need to override the method and tell it to load the collection Jul 14, 2015 at 6:54
  • How can i override the getSize(),can you explain that or having any tutorial for getSize() override?
