Verify Sort Order in a Silverlight DataGrid

I would like to sort a column in a Silverlight DataGrid and verify the content is in the correct order.

Solution

This is possible with a coded solution. The example below is against a Silverlight toolkit sample.

After navigating there, click DataGrid in the left-hand menu. Then click the FirstName column header to sort that column. Finally, add a coded step:

//Get the data grid. 
SilverlightApp app = ActiveBrowser.SilverlightApps()[0]; 
DataGrid grid = app.Find.ByAutomationId<DataGrid>("dataGrid"); 
 
int r = grid.Rows.Count; 
List<string> list = new List<string>(); 
 
//Place the TextBlock content of the FirstName cell from each row into the string list. 
for (int i = 0; i < r; i++) 
{ 
    DataGridRow row = grid.Rows[i]; 
    DataGridCell cell = row.Cells[2];    
    list.Add(cell.TextBlockContent); 
    Log.WriteLine(cell.TextBlockContent); 
} 
 
//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) 
    { 
        break; 
    } 
    else 
    { 
        Assert.IsTrue(list[j+1].CompareTo(list[j]) >= 0); 
    } 
} 
Dim app As SilverlightApp = ActiveBrowser.SilverlightApps()(0) 
Dim grid As DataGrid = app.Find.ByAutomationId(Of DataGrid)("dataGrid") 
 
Dim r As Integer = grid.Rows.Count 
Dim list As New List(Of String)() 
 
 
For i As Integer = 0 To r - 1 
    Dim row As DataGridRow = grid.Rows(i) 
    Dim cell As DataGridCell = row.Cells(2) 
    list.Add(cell.TextBlockContent) 
    Log.WriteLine(cell.TextBlockContent) 
Next 
 
 
For j As Integer = 0 To list.Count - 1 
    If j + 1 = list.Count Then 
        Exit For 
    Else 
        Assert.IsTrue(list(j + 1).CompareTo(list(j)) >= 0) 
    End If 
Next
