Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on June 12, 2024
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 wItemEnabled property to determine whether a control item is enabled or disabled.



Read-Only Property Boolean
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    

Applies To

The property is applied to the following objects:

View Mode

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


The property 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.

Property Value

True, if the specified item is enabled, or False, if the item is disabled.


  • If the specified item is not found, wItemEnabled returns the null value (Nothing in VBScript, nil in DelphiScript, None in Python, null in JavaScript, JScript, C++Script and C#Script) and posts an error message to the test log.

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

  • iOS NavigatorBar controls: the property always returns False for the first item of the NavigatorBar control (wItemEnabled(0)) regardless of whether this item is selected or not.
