DoDefaultAction Method (MSAA Objects)

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on May 16, 2024


The DoDefaultAction lets you perform the default action associated with the given object. For example, for button controls, the default action is pressing the button; the default action for a check box control is checking or unchecking it (depending on the current state of the check box), and so on.

If the object does not have a default action specified, DoDefaultAction posts an error message to the test log.
