public List<EmpModel> GetAllEmployees()
    List<EmpModel> EmpList = new List<EmpModel>();

    SqlCommand com = new SqlCommand("GetEmployees", con);
    com.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
    SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(com);
    DataTable dt = new DataTable();

    foreach (DataRow dr in dt.Rows)

            new EmpModel
                EmployeeId = Convert.ToInt32(dr["EmployeeId"]),
                EmployeeName = Convert.ToString(dr["EmployeeName"]),
                EmployeeStatus = Convert.ToInt32(dr["EmployeeStatus"])

are this possible if yes how
Graeme_Grant 6-Feb-23 18:26pm    
EmpList.Count is the total number of rows as @PIEBALDconsult indicated

Look at it this way. You buy a book, the book contains a table of contents. You want to return "the book and its table of contents" -- all you have to do is return the book _because_it_contains_the_table_of_contents_.
It's the same thing, the List contains the Count of item/rows.

The way you seem to be thinking, no, you can only return ONE THING, the collection OR the count, not both.

But, in your code, you're filling a DataTable with a bunch of rows from the database. Then you're converting the data to an EmpModel object and adding that to a List<empmode>. Once you have that list complete, YOU ALREDY HAVE THE COUNT OF ROWS! It's in the EmpList.Count property.
