Fetches the number of related objects.


fetch( 'content', 'related_objects_count',
   hash( 'object_id',                object_id,
       [ 'attribute_identifier',     attribute_identifier,  ]
       [ 'all_relations',            boolean,               ] ) )


object_id integer The ID number of the target object. Yes.
attribute_identifier mixed The ID number or class/attribute identifier of the target attribute. No.
all_relations boolean Controls whether to fetch all types of relations or not, default is FALSE. No.


An integer (the number of related objects).


This fetch function operates in almost the same way as the "related_objects" fetch function. The difference is that instead of returning the related objects themselves, it returns the count (the number of related objects that were found). The "related_objects_count" function takes the same parameters as the "related_objects" function with some exceptions (for example sorting is not supported). Please refer to the documentation of the "related_objects" function for a detailed description of the parameters.
