storeXpathCount could probably do what you are asking for

i tried like this by entering,

storeXpathCount css=html a
echo ${a}

Got ERROR:

[error] Locator does not use XPath strategy: css=html

To use the storeXPathCount command you have to use XPath...not CSS. Your combo box does not have an ID. This makes it difficult to identify the elements in it. The commands you could use are this:

storeXPathCount | //div[@id='p5028']/div/div/div['+x+']/div/select| x
echo| ${x}

storeCssCount | css=select| x
echo | ${x}

Unfortunately,I tried both of these commands and they only return '1'.

Also when you record an element using the IDE version, on the target field there is typically a drop down. With that drop down, you can switch to the xpath.
