I am trying to find a simple way of getting a count of the number of elements in a list:

MyList = ["a", "b", "c"]

I want to know there are 3 elements in this list.

just do len(MyList)

This also works for strings, tuples, dict objects.

len(myList) should do it.

len works with all the collections, and strings too.

len() 

it will count the element in the list, tuple and string and dictionary, eg.

>>> mylist = [1,2,3] #list
>>> len(mylist)
3
>>> word = 'hello' # string 
>>> len(word)
5
>>> vals = {'a':1,'b':2} #dictionary
>>> len(vals)
2
>>> tup = (4,5,6) # tuple 
>>> len(tup)
3

To find count of unique elements of list use the combination of len() and set().

>>> ls = [1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 1, 2]
>>> len(ls)
7
>>> len(set(ls))
4

You can get element count of list by following two ways:

>>> l = ['a','b','c']
>>> len(l)
3

>>> l.__len__() 
3
