Generally, the information about the total count of the items is a functionality of the pager. Therefore, if you would like to show the items count without enabling paging, I can suggest two approaches:
1. In the Pageable configuration of the grid set the .Numeric(false) and PreviousNext(false). And set a PageSize() large enough to fit all of the items from the data source.
2. Disable the paging. And for the last column of the grid set the count aggregate. Then in the ClientFooterTemplate of the same column, show the count. This would lead to something similar to the live demo below:
Let me know in case additional clarifications are needed for either of the approaches.
