TestItem Object (Specific to Project Object)

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

Description

The TestItem object provides access to a test item defined in your project and allows you to get the test item’s property values. Note that all of the TestItem object properties are read-only and cannot be changed during the test run. To set up the project’s test items, use the Execution Plan editor of the project.

To access a project’s top-level test item by its index, use the TestItems.TestItem property. To access a child test item, use the TestItem property of its parent test item.

Example

The following example iterates through a project’s test items and posts their properties to the test log:

JavaScript

function Test()
{
  // Iterates through test items
  for (let i = 0; i < Project.TestItems.ItemCount; i++)
    LogTestItemInfo(Project.TestItems.TestItem(i));

  // Obtains the test item description
  TestItemInfo = TestItemInfo + "Description: " + ATestItem.Description + "\r\n";

  // Obtains the name of the test run by the test item
  TestItemInfo = TestItemInfo + "Test: ";
