Use the wColumn property to get the caption of an object column 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 zero-based index of the grid column whose caption you want to retrieve. Note that this parameter takes the column’s position within the grid’s internal columns collection rather than the column’s visible position in the grid (in general, these positions can differ).

Property Value

A string holding the caption of the specified column.


If the column with the specified index is not found, wColumn returns an empty string and posts an error message to the test log.

To get the total number of columns read the wColumnCount property.
