How to count the number of options in a select box using JQuery

Written by Ian Carnaghan · 10 sec read >

This can be done using the jQuery length property

You will use the following command to determine if there are any options within the select box.

var length = $('#selectBoxId > option').length;
console.log(length);

#selectBoxId should be replaced with the ID of your select box.
