Notepad++, how to count tabs in a tab delimited file?

I've got a tab delimited file, is there an easy way for me to count the total number of tabs on a line?

You could search for the tab character in the file. Go to Search -> Find..., in the Find what field paste the tab character (it will probably look like a box) and click on Count. Unfortunately, this only gives you the total number of tabs in the document, not the total number of tabs in the line, even if you choose the In selection.
