Getting List View Items' Text

Applies to TestComplete 15.40, last modified on March 25, 2022

When you test an Android application that uses list view controls, you may need to obtain captions of items of the list view controls. This topic describes how to do this.

Using the wItem Property

The Android ListView object that corresponds to the tested list view control provides a set of properties that allow you to get the text of the list view control’s individual items. To obtain the text of an item, use the wItem property.

The following code snippet demonstrates how to get a list view item’s caption:

JavaScript, JScript

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

  // Obtain a list view
  var app = Mobile.Device().Process("com.example.myapp");
  var listviewObj = app.RootLayout("").Layout("layout1").ListView("listview1");

  // Obtain the text of the first item and post it to the test log
  var text = listviewObj.wItem(0);
  Log.Message(text);
}

Python

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

  # Obtain a list view
  app = Mobile.Device().Process("com.example.myapp")
  listviewObj = app.RootLayout("").Layout("layout1").ListView("listview1")

  # Obtain the text of the first item and post it to the test log
  text = listviewObj.wItem[0]
  Log.Message(text)

VBScript

Sub Test()
  Dim app, listviewObj, text

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

  ' Obtain a list view
  Set app = Mobile.Device.Process("com.example.myapp")
  Set listviewObj = app.RootLayout("").Layout("layout1").ListView("listview1")

  ' Obtain the text of the first item and post it to the test log
  text = listviewObj.wItem(0)
  Log.Message(text)
End Sub

DelphiScript

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

  // Obtain a list view
  app := Mobile.Device.Process('com.example.myapp');
  listviewObj := app.RootLayout('').Layout('layout1').ListView('listview1');

  // Obtain the text of the first item and post it to the test log
  text := listviewObj.wItem(0);
  Log.Message(text);
end;

C++Script, C#Script

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

  // Obtain a list view
  var app = Mobile["Device"]["Process"]("com.example.myapp");
  var listviewObj = app["RootLayout"]("")["Layout"]("layout1")["ListView"]("listview1");

  // Obtain the text of the first item and post it to the test log
  var text = listviewObj["wItem"](0);
  Log["Message"](text);
}

Note: To get the total number of items the list view control contains, use the wItemCount property.
Simulating Actions From Keyword Tests

This topic explains how to get item’s text of the list view control in scripts. You can use the described properties in keyword tests too. To do this, use the On-Screen Action or the Call Object Method operations.
