ClickButton Action (Date-Time Edit Controls)

Applies to TestComplete 14.91, last modified on July 20, 2021
This method is not supported in web tests (including cross-platform web tests) that use XPath expressions and CSS selectors to locate web elements. This method can be only used in tests that locate web objects by using internal identification properties provided by TestComplete.

Description

The ClickButton action moves the mouse pointer to the controls’s edit button and then simulates a single click of the left mouse button. The Button parameter specifies the button index or caption.

Declaration

TestObj.ClickButton(ButtonClientXClientY)

TestObj A variable, parameter or expression that specifies a reference to one of the objects listed in the Applies To section
Button [in]    Required    Variant    
ClientX [in]    Optional    Integer Default value: -1   
ClientY [in]    Optional    Integer Default value: -1   
Result None

Applies To

The method is applied to the following objects:

View Mode

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

Parameters

The method has the following parameters:

Button

Specifies the control’s edit button to be clicked. You can enter the button’s index (an integer value from 0), or string that contains the button’s 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.

ClientX

Specifies the horizontal coordinate of the point, to which the mouse cursor will be moved before click-simulation. Default value is -1 and it means that the mouse cursor will be moved to the center of the edit button.

ClientY

Specifies the vertical coordinate of the point, to which the mouse cursor will be moved before click-simulation. Default value is -1 and it means that the mouse cursor will be moved to the center of the edit button.

Result Value

None.

Remarks

  • The ClientX and ClientY parameters specify coordinates in the button’s client area. The origin of client coordinates is in the top left corner of the edit button. When these parameters are not specified, mouse cursor will be moved to the center of the edit button.

  • If the specified button is not found, ClickButton fails and posts an error message to the test log.

  • Desktop testing: If TestObj refers to an object of a non-DPI-aware application running with a DPI setting other than 100%, set the ClientX and ClientY parameter values relative to the application (as if the application is running with the 100% DPI setting).

  • Web testing: If the Use CSS pixels for scaled pages option is enabled (by default), set the ClientX and ClientY parameter values relative to the web page, regardless of the browser zoom and the system's DPI setting.
