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.


Specifies whether the specified item should be checked (True) or unchecked (False).

Result Value



If Checked is True and the item is unchecked, it is checked; if Checked is False and the item is checked, it is unchecked. If the item is already in the specified state, no action is made. If the specifies item is not found, CheckItem fails and posts an error message to the test log.
