ControlIndex Property (Flex Objects)

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on May 16, 2024
This property is not supported in web tests (including cross-platform web tests) that use XPath expressions and CSS selectors to locate web elements. This property can be only used in tests that locate web objects by using internal identification properties provided by TestComplete.


The ControlIndex property returns the object’s index within the parent object’s children collection. This index can be used to uniquely identify the given object.

To get the object’s index among sibling objects of the same type, use the ControlIndexInGroup property.
