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.


This parameter specifies the column where a click will be performed. It can be an item's caption, or the column's index (from 0). If it is omitted, the default value is 0, that is click actions will be performed over the items of the first column of the XUL tree control.


Specifies whether the CTRL, ALT or SHIFT keys will be pressed during the click. The default value is skNoShift (no shift key pressed). See TShiftKey.
