Applies To

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 property 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.


The index of the desired subitem or its mask (for more information using masks, see Remarks). Subitems are indexed from 1: the first subitem has the index of 1, the second subitem - 2, and so on. The last subitem’s index is wColumnCount-1.

To get the caption of a list view item, not a subitem, leave the SubItem value default.

Property Value

The caption of the specified item or subitem.


The Item and SubItem parameter values can contain regular expressions or wildcards -- * and ?. The asterisk (*) corresponds to the string of any length, the question mark (?) - to any single character. You can use regular expressions and wildcards to indicate variable parts of item and subitem captions. For example, you could use them to get the full caption of a subitem specified by its mask.

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