Property Value

A Win32ListViewGroup object that contains the group information.

If the specified item or subitem is not found in the list view, wGroup returns an empty value (Nothing in VBScript, null in JavaScript, JScript, C++Script and C#Script, None in Python and nil in DelphiScript) and posts an error message to the test log.


If you use Python or DelphiScript, you should enclose the parameters of the wGroup property in square brackets: wGroup[Item, SubItem].
