I need to count the number of records in a table.I tried like this -
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter();
string select = "select count(*) as number from tblRegNo;
da.SelectCommand = new SqlCommand(select, con);

Then I need to assign this number to a integer variable.Then I can use a messagebox to view the number of records in the database table.
Please help me. I am a beginner for C# programming.

After Query Of Count Use:

SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(select, con);
int Newvalue = Convert.ToInt32(cmd.ExecuteScalar());

Try the below code

string query = "select count(*) as number from tblRegNo";
SqlCommand cmd= new SqlCommand(query,con);
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
int noOfRecords=0;
   noOfRecords = Convert.ToInt32(ds.Table[0].Rows[0]["number"].ToString());
string select = "select* from tblRegNo";
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(select, con);
DataTable dt = new DataTable();

var count= dt.Rows.Count.ToString();
