TouchItemXY Method (Specific to Android ExpandableList Controls)

Applies to TestComplete 14.91, last modified on July 20, 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 touching at the specific point within the item, specified by its index or name.

Declaration

TestObj.TouchItemXY(GroupItemXY)

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

Applies To

The method is applied to the following object:

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:

Group

Specifies the desired group. You can enter the group’s index (from 0) or its name.

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.

Item

Specifies a zero-based item’s index.

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 over the first item in the "Group 1" of the expandable list.

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
  expList = app.Layout("layoutListView").ExpandableListView("elv1");
  
  // Simulating a touch at the specified point within the Item1
  expList.TouchItemXY("Group 1", 0, 5, 5)
}

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")
  
  # Simulating a touch at the specified point within the Item1
  expList.TouchItemXY("Group 1", 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 expandable list
  Set expList = app.Layout("layoutListView").ExpandableListView("elv1")
  
  ' Simulating a touch at the specified point within the Item1
  Call expList.TouchItemXY("Group 1", 0, 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 expandable list
  expList := app.Layout('layoutListView').ExpandableListView('elv1');
  
  // Simulating a touch at the specified point within the Item1
  expList.TouchItemXY('Group 1', 0, 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 expandable list
  var expList = app["Layout"]("layoutListView")["ExpandableListView"]("elv1");
  
  // Simulating a touch at the specified point within the Item1
  expList["TouchItemXY"]("Group 1", 0, 5, 5)
}
