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 item should be checked (True) or unchecked (False).

Result Value



If the specified item does not exist or cannot be checked, CheckItem fails and posts an error message to the test log. To determine whether a toolbar item can be checked, use the wIsCheckButton property.

If the item is already checked, CheckItem posts a message to the test log. To determine whether the item is already in the checked or unchecked state, use the wChecked property.
