About Sitecore Child Item Count

Sitecore Child Item Count Module is for getting the child item of the selected item in Content Editor. It also provide an option to specify the template id of child item, if you want to fetch the items of any specific template. It works based on the index. It also check the current Language. If your current selected language is Japanese and if the child item doesn't exist with Japanese language version than it won't include in child count.

If the child items are more than 4096 then you might get an below error. Error

In order to handle this you will need to increase value of LuceneQueryClauseCount in Sitecore.ContentSearch.Lucene.DefaultIndexConfiguration.config


Extension Method

I've written below extension method, so you can use and modify as per requirement. Also you can update the logic to fetch the data based on fast query if needed.

public static class ItemExtension
        public static int GetallItemsCount(this Item item, string itemPath, string templateID = null)
            var indexable = (SitecoreIndexableItem)item;
            using (var context = ContentSearchManager.GetIndex(indexable).CreateSearchContext())
                List<SearchResultItem> results = null;
                if (string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(templateID))
                    results = context.GetQueryable<SearchResultItem>().Where(x => x.Path.StartsWith(itemPath + "/") && x.Language == item.Language.Name).ToList();
                    Guid guidOutput = new Guid();
                    bool isTemplateIDGUID = Guid.TryParse(templateID, out guidOutput);
                    if (isTemplateIDGUID)
                        //Applied Language Check because it was fetching same item for all the different languages if any.
                        //In this case -- If the child item doesn't exist with the current selected Language then it won't be displayed.
                        results = context.GetQueryable<SearchResultItem>().Where(x => x.Path.StartsWith(itemPath + "/")).ToList();
                        results = results.Where(x => x.TemplateId == new ID(templateID) && x.Language == item.Language.Name).ToList();
                if (results != null && results.Count > 0)
                    foreach (var result in results)
                        var res = result.GetItem();
                    return results.Count;

                return 0;

Happy Item Counting! :)
