The index is zero-based, that is, the index of the first item is 0. The index of the last item is wItemCount - 1.

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.

If the specified item is not found, the property returns False and posts an error message to the test log.

To expand and collapse grid items, use the Expand and Collapse actions. You can also expand and collapse items using the DblClickLabel action.
