DblClickDivider Action (Header Controls)

Applies to TestComplete 15.65, last modified on June 26, 2024


The DblClickDivider action simulates a double-click over a divider that separates two items of a header control. A double-click on a divider is typically used to resize the item located to the left of the divider. Therefore, you can use this action to simulate user actions in a test that checks whether items are resized properly.

The method has the following parameters:


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.


Specifies whether the CTRL, ALT or SHIFT keys will be pressed during the double-click. The default value is skNoShift (no shift key pressed). See TShiftKey.

If the item is not found in the header, DblClickDivider fails and posts an error message to the test log.
