  • <ul id="ul_list">
        <li>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetuer.</li>
        <li>Aenean commodo ligula eget dolor.</li>
        <li>Aenean massa cum sociis natoque penatibus.</li>
    </ul>
    
    <script>
        var listCount = document.getElementById("ul_list").getElementsByTagName("li").length;
    	alert(listCount);
    </script>

    It will return the count of all (LI) items of an UL.
