How to get the number of entries in a table using flutter_moor?


When I am adding an entry to the table, I need to know the number of elements in the table.

onPressed: () {
  final db = Provider.of<AppDb>(context);

  final habitCount = 0; /* Number of entries in the "Habits" table */
    .insert(HabitsCompanion.insert(name: "Sleep", order: habitCount * 2 ));

How can I do this as easily as possible?


You can create DAO to manage all queries. Here I am giving you an example of todos table which is used in documentation.

In this example, you can create a manual query by the queries key.

@UseDao(tables: [Todos], queries: {'totalTodos': 'SELECT COUNT(*) FROM todos;'})
class TodoDao extends DatabaseAccessor<MyDatabase> with _$TodoDaoMixin  {

  final MyDatabase database;

  TodoDao(this.database) : super(database);

  Future<int> getTotalRecords() {
    return totalTodos().getSingle();

How to use:

Selectable<int> total = TodoDao(database).totalTodos();
total.getSingle().then((value) => print('Records: $value'));

Hope you will understand the example. Do let me know if you have any questions.
