Is it possible to display the number of items contained within a sub-folder within a document library? When the user opens up the document library, he would like to see next to any sub-folder the number of items contained in that subfolder without having to navigate into it.
In the MSDN documentation there is a built-in field, SPBuiltInFieldId.ItemChildCount,where the number of items is kept. Can this field be used to accomplish this requirement? If so, is there any information on using the SharePoint object model on how to expose it? It is not accessible from the Document Library Settings.
