TouchItemXY Method (Mobile Controls)

Applies to TestComplete 15.0, last modified on October 14, 2021
This method is available in legacy mobile tests that work with devices connected to the local computer. To learn how to simulate user actions in newer cloud-compatible mobile tests, see the Simulating user actions in tests section.

Description

The TouchItemXY action simulates a touch at the specific point within the control’s item specified by its index or name.

Declaration

TestObj.TouchItemXY(Item, X, Y)

TestObj A variable, parameter or expression that specifies a reference to one of the objects listed in the Applies To section
Item [in]    Required    Variant    
X [in]    Required    Integer    
Y [in]    Required    Integer    
Result None

Applies To

The method is applied to the following objects:

View Mode

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

Parameters

The method has the following parameters:

Item

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.

X

Specifies the horizontal coordinate (in pixels) of the point where touching will be simulated. This coordinate is specified relatively to the top-left corner of the underlying control.

Y

Specifies the vertical coordinate (in pixels) of the point where touching will be simulated. This coordinate is specified relatively to the top-left corner of the underlying control.

Result Value

None.

Example

The following example simulates a touch at the specified point within the "Item1" button of the application’s action bar

JavaScript, JScript

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

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

  // Obtain an action bar
  var actionbar = app.Layout("NO_ID").Layout("action_bar_container").ActionBar("action_bar")

  // Simulating a touch at the specified point within the Item1
  actionbar.TouchItemXY("Item1", 5, 5)
}

Python

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

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

  # Obtain an action bar
  actionbar = app.Layout("NO_ID").Layout("action_bar_container").ActionBar("action_bar")

  # Simulating a touch at the specified point within the Item1
  actionbar.TouchItemXY(0, 5, 5)

VBScript

Sub Test
  Dim app, actionbar

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

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

  ' Obtain an action bar
  Set actionbar = app.Layout("NO_ID").Layout("action_bar_container").ActionBar("action_bar")

  ' Simulating a touch at the specified point within the Item1
  Call actionbar.TouchItemXY("Item1", 5, 5)
End Sub

DelphiScript

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

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

  // Obtain an action bar
  actionbar := app.Layout('NO_ID').Layout('action_bar_container').ActionBar('action_bar');

  // Simulating a touch at the specified point within the Item1
  actionbar.TouchItemXY('Item1', 5, 5);
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 action bar
  var actionbar = app["Layout"]("NO_ID")["Layout"]("action_bar_container")["ActionBar"]("action_bar")

  // Simulating a touch at the specified point within the Item1
  actionbar["TouchItemXY"]("Item1", 5, 5)
}
