The Get(TotalRecordCount) function will return the sum count of all the records in the current FileMaker table as viewed by the foremost layout window. The current table will refer to the source table that is attached to the table occurrence in the current layout. The calculation will need to be unstored in order to be accurate when viewed on the layout. It will count the current users uncommitted records as well as the records that are in the index.
In some layout designs, the status area is hidden from the user. This can be done for security reasons or the developer wants to maximize the use of the screen real estate. Many times this function is used when someone is mimicking the information shown in the status area in browse mode.
