  1. Shantonu,

    I would like to know how do I verify all the items present in the list.

    1. we need the list items as iteration with assertion(is item present/ search with text).. like, if we have a combo box, first we need to get the items of the combo and iterate inside of the items with assertion for specific items. (we can manually assert without iteration also but it will need more coding)
