Using FileMaker's PHP API, I want to get the total record count for the table of the active layout. I took me a long time to find it so I am sharing this...
<?php $total = $result->getTableRecordCount();
if (( ($statusLinks['records']['foundcount'])) == $total )
echo "<meta HTTP-EQUIV='REFRESH' content='1; url=index.php'>" ;
(Probably obvious to most of you and you may have a better way of showing ).
This file should only be accessed after a search for a subset limiting the number of records so I forward them back to the index file if they find all.
