View Mode

To view this method in the Object Browser panel and in other panels and dialogs, activate the Advanced view mode.


The method has the following parameter:


Specifies the desired item. You can enter the item’s index (from 0) or its caption. The caption can contain asterisk (*) or question mark (?) wildcards or regular expressions. The asterisk (*) corresponds to a string of any length (including an empty string), the question mark corresponds to any single character (including none). To specify more complicated parts of a caption, use regular expressions.

The caption can be case-sensitive or case-insensitive depending on the value of the Use case-sensitive parameters project setting.

Result Value



If the specified item is already collapsed, the CollapseItem action does not perform any actions and posts an informative message to the test log.

Due to the specifics of the GWT StackPanel and MooTools Accordion controls, their items can be collapsed only automatically. If you use CollapseItem with any of these controls, the method will fail and post an error message to the test log.
