When working with an expandable list control, you select items in the list. To select an expandable list item, you can use several actions provided by Android ExpandableList object:

All these actions have two parameters:

The following example demonstrates how you can use the mentioned actions in scripts:

JavaScript, JScript

function Test()
{
  // Select an Android device
  Mobile.SetCurrent("MyDevice");

  // Obtain an application
  var app = Mobile.Device().Process("com.example.myapp");

  // Obtain an Expandable list
  var expList = app.Layout("layoutListView").ExpandableListView("elv1");
  
  // Touch some items within Group 1
  expList.TouchItem("Group 1", 0);
  expList.LongTouchItem("Group 1", 3);
}

Python

def Test(): 
  # Select an Android device
  Mobile.SetCurrent("MyDevice")

  # Obtain an application
  app = Mobile.Device().Process("com.example.myapp")

  # Obtain an Expandable list
  expList = app.Layout("layoutListView").ExpandableListView("elv1")
  
  # Touch some items within Group 1
  expList.TouchItem("Group 1", 0)
  expList.LongTouchItem("Group 1", 3)

VBScript

Sub Test()
  ' Select an Android device
  Mobile.SetCurrent("MyDevice")

  ' Obtain an application
  Set app = Mobile.Device.Process("com.example.myapp")

  ' Obtain an Expandable list
  Set expList = app.Layout("layoutListView").ExpandableListView("elv1")
  
  ' Touch some items within Group 1
  Call expList.TouchItem("Group 1", 0)
  Call expList.LongTouchItem("Group 1", 3)
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure Test();
var
  app, expList: OleVariant;
begin
  // Select an Android device
  Mobile.SetCurrent('MyDevice');

  // Obtain an application
  app := Mobile.Device.Process('com.example.myapp');

  // Obtain an Expandable list
  expList := app.Layout('layoutListView').ExpandableListView('elv1');
  
  // Touch some items
  expList.TouchItem('Group 1', 0);
  expList.LongTouchItem('Group 1', 3);
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
{
  // Select an Android device
  Mobile["SetCurrent"]("MyDevice");

  // Obtain an application
  var app = Mobile["Device"]["Process"]("com.example.myapp");

  // Obtain an Expandable list
  var expList = app["Layout"]("layoutListView")["ExpandableListView"]("elv1");
  
  // Touch some items
  expList["TouchItem"]("Group 1", 0);
  expList["LongTouchItem"]("Group 1", 3);
}
