$page->count() method

Returns number of children page has, affected by output formatting mode.

  • When output formatting is on, returns only number of visible children, making the return value the same as the Page::hasChildren() method.

  • When output formatting is off, returns number of all children without exclusion, making the return value the same as the Page::numChildren() method.

Example

// Get number of visible children, like $page->hasChildren()
$page->of(true); // enable output formatting
$numVisible = $page->count();

// Get number of all children, like $page->numChildren()
$page->of(false); // disable output formatting
$numTotal = $page->count();

Usage

$int = $page->count();

Return value

int

Quantity of children
