Applies To

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 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

A string value holding the title of the specified item of the control.


If the specified item is not found, wItemText 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 wButtonText property in square brackets: wButtonText[Item, ByPosition].
