How to count the number of rows in a table in Selenium with python?

Selenium Web DriverAutomation TestingSoftware Testing

We can count the total number of rows in a table in Selenium. The rows of a table are represented by <tr> tag in html code. To get all the rows, we shall use the locator xpath and then use find_elements_by_xpath method. The list of rows will be returned. Next we need to compute the size of the list with the help of len method.

The html code snippet of a table row count is as described below −

Syntax

driver.find_elements_by_xpath("//table/tbody/tr")

Example

Code Implementation for getting row count.

from selenium import webdriver
#browser exposes an executable file
#Through Selenium test we will invoke the executable file which will then
#invoke actual browser
driver = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path="C:\\chromedriver.exe")
# to maximize the browser window
driver.maximize_window()
#get method to launch the URL
driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/plsql/plsql_basic_syntax.htm")
#to refresh the browser
driver.refresh()
# identifying the number of rows having <tr> tag
rows = driver.find_elements_by_xpath("//table/tbody/tr")
# len method is used to get the size of that list
print(len(rows))
#to close the browser
driver.close()
