Verify Sort Order in an HTML Table

I would like to sort a column in an HTML Table and verify the content is in the correct order.


This is possible with a coded solution. The example below is against this Telerik demo site.

Let's verify the first column, Order ID, is in sequential order:

//Get the table. 
HtmlTable table = Find.ByExpression<HtmlTable>("id=Grid", "|", "tagIndex=table:1"); 
int r = table.Rows.Count; 
List<string> list = new List<string>(); 
//Place the text content of the Order ID cell from each row into the string list. 
for (int i = 0; i < r; i++) 
    HtmlTableRow row = table.Rows[i]; 
    HtmlTableCell cell = row.Cells[0];   
//Assert each string in the list is greater than the string before it. 
for (int j = 0; j < list.Count; j++) 
    if (j+1 == list.Count) 
        Assert.IsTrue(list[j+1].CompareTo(list[j]) >= 0); 
Dim table As HtmlTable = Find.ByExpression(Of HtmlTable)("id=Grid", "|", "tagIndex=table:1") 
Dim r As Integer = table.Rows.Count 
Dim list As New List(Of String)() 
For i As Integer = 0 To r - 1 
    Dim row As HtmlTableRow = table.Rows(i) 
    Dim cell As HtmlTableCell = row.Cells(0) 
For j As Integer = 0 To list.Count - 1 
    If j + 1 = list.Count Then 
        Exit For 
        Assert.IsTrue(list(j + 1).CompareTo(list(j)) >= 0) 
    End If
