Parameters

The method has the following parameters:

Item

Specifies the caption or zero-based index of the desired item. The caption could contain asterisk (*) or question mark (?) wildcards. The asterisk corresponds to the string of any length, the question mark - to any single character.

The caption can be case-sensitive or case-insensitive depending on the value of the Use case-sensitive parameters project setting.

X

Specifies the horizontal coordinate of the mouse cursor at which the click will be simulated. The coordinate is relative to the top left of the item.

Y

Specifies the vertical coordinate of the mouse cursor at which the click will be simulated. The coordinate is relative to the top left of the item.

Shift

Specifies a key which will be pressed during the click. See TShiftKey.

Result Value

None.

Remarks

  • If the specified item is not found, ClickItemMXY fails and posts an error message to the test log

  • Desktop testing: If TestObj refers to an object of a non-DPI-aware application running with a DPI setting other than 100%, set the X and Y parameter values relative to the application (as if the application is running with the 100% DPI setting).

  • Web testing: If the Use CSS pixels for scaled pages option is enabled (by default), set the X and Y parameter values relative to the web page, regardless of the browser zoom and the system's DPI setting.
