Number of output in results window

Is there a method or function, etc. to obtain the number of "Results" displayed in results window?

 

Well,let's call this function “get_num_results_window”.
For example in the figure below

result_0.png
X = get_num_results_window ();
"put x;" shows "0"

 

For example in the figure below

result_1.jpg
X = get_num_results_window ();

"put x;" shows "1"


Thank you for your cooperation!

No there isn't. Maybe what you want can be done another way. Why do you need this?

Thank you your quick comment,ChrisNZ.
Just I want to make a branch.
It is like (maybe not right code,just for showing what I want )

If x = 0 then do;
/* do nothing */
end;
else do;
DM 'ODSRESULTS' CLEAR EDITOR;
end;

If you close the ods destination and start a new one, does that answer your needs?
