Subject RE: Has anyone tried to implement a counter?
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2003 15:13:49 GMT
Hi, thanks for replying.

For example

I run a search, and when I use the length() method in the hits object to
display the total number of hits/results I get a result of 52.  However
when I display the contents of the hits object to a page, I am getting
57 or 58 results on the page.  5 or 6 more results than is shown from
the length() method in the hits object.

Shannon,  I'm not following what the issue is here.  Any chance you 
could show us some (succinct) code that illustrates things clearer?
