No results variable for grid field

    I really need to detect if there is result output from my grid tag with search parameter. I don’t see any variable no_results in the documentation for the grid field and total_rows will not work with my search parameter.

    Is there any solution for this?

    The only way to do this would be inserting all rows into an php array, I think.
    Something like this:

    $gridRows = array();
        $gridRows[] = '{grid:field}';
    if (empty($gridRows))
        // array is empty
        // do something with the rows

    Untested, but this should work. Change “PHP Parsing Stage” of your template if it doesn’t.

    Hope the grid tag pair gets upgraded soon.
