This property 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.


Use the wItem property to get the caption of a control’s item specified by its index.

The property is applied to the following objects:

View Mode

This property is available in the Object Browser panel and in other panels and dialogs in both Basic and Advanced view modes.


The property has the following parameter:


Specifies the index of the item whose caption you want to get. The index is zero-based, that is, the first item has the index 0, the second - 1, and so on. The index of the last item is wItemCount - 1.

Property Value

The caption of the specified item.


To get the caption of an item in an Android application, TestComplete uses the getText() native method. If a child item does not support this method, the wItem property returns an empty string.

If you use Python or DelphiScript, you should enclose the parameters of the wItem property in square brackets: wItem[Item, SubItem].
