The QgsVectorLayer.featureCount() method returns zero with python.

  1. Load a Postgis layer
  2. Select layer in legend
  3. Execute Python script in console:
from qgis.utils import iface
from PyQt4.QtCore import *
from PyQt4.QtGui import *
mc = iface.mapCanvas()
vlayer = mc.currentLayer()

It returns the correct count of feature with python when show the features in the legend.

Works with QGIS 1.8.

Works for me - tried with a simple point layer. Isn't that specific to a particular layer / server? Is that a view? Are you using a query? Will it always return zero even after some operations on layer, e.g. show attribute table?

Works for me too. Closing for the lack of feedback.
