Expanded Property (TreeViewItem Objects)

Applies to TestComplete 15.64, last modified on June 12, 2024
This property is not supported in web tests (including cross-platform web tests) that use XPath expressions and CSS selectors to locate web elements. This property can be only used in tests that locate web objects by using internal identification properties provided by TestComplete.


Use the Expanded property to check whether the control's item is expanded. When the state is expanded, the child items are displayed below the parent item. When it is collapsed, the child items are not displayed. The list automatically toggles between the expanded and collapsed states when the user double-clicks the parent item or when the user clicks the button associated with the parent item.
