    Recursive code call is a feature of scripting language and thus it definitely can be done in TestComplete.

    Code template is like this:

    function main()


      value = RecursiveFunction(<param>);



    function RecursiveFunction(<param>)


      param1 = <ModifyParamAsNeeded(param)>;

      // check if recursion should continue

      if (<ShouldContinueWithRecursion(param)>)

        return RecursiveFunction(<param1>);


        return <param1>;

      Dear AlexKaras,


      Thank you for your reply, I know about the concept of recurssion and how  to do it also but my question is,


      eg. The below is the object 



      is it possible to do above object mapping via recurssion ?


      function for texts


      recursion function returs VCLObject(texts)

        You're already accessing them via Aliases... why would you need to use recursion?  Simply map the components you need to use.
