Verify the number of items in a combo box when using browser driven load testing

Verify the number of items in a combo box when using browser driven load testing

It may sometimes be useful to check how many items a drop down list contains.  These controls often don't have a size property to retrieve the total number of items so the following code can be used to count down and return the total number of values in the list.  

The code operates using the second parameter of BrowserListBoxSelect which allows the use of a number (zero indexed) instead of a string.

// set upper limit from which countdown should begin
x := 10;
// set custom severity to informational
for i := 1 to 100 do
BrowserListBoxSelect("//SELECT[@name='CardType']", x) = true then
// incremement counter by 1 to account for zero index
Print("object has "+string(x)+" parameters ");
// decrement counter
// remove custom severity
