This depends on what the “item” is. If it’s an HTML table, we have built in quick verification's for the number of rows and number of columns. We have the same for our RadGrid controls as well. But if you want to do something like verify there are 12 results returned from a search you’ll need to use code. The problem is that Test Studio doesn't understand what a “search result” is. In code we can iterate through the page find the correct items and count them.
