Hi,

Is there a way to programmatically find out how many options (items) exist (have been populated) in a dropdownlist control during Page_Load (in ASP.NET using C#)? I can do this in JavaScript, but I need to do it in ASP.NET.  The dropdownlist control does not support the "length" property.

Many thanks.
