Count the number of elements matching a node in the xpath

Have you ever encountered a situation where you just need to count the type of elements on a page:

For instance:

  • Number Of columns in a table
  • The way the frames are designed
  • The page objects that appear on a page
XPATH is so powerful when it comes to automation that it eliminates so much of code by just using some simple xpath expressions. One of them is this:


int iCount = driver.findElements(By.xpath("Xpath Value")).size());
Can that be simpler than that!
