AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty Field

Definition

Identifies the IsControlElement property.

public: static initonly System::Windows::Automation::AutomationProperty ^ IsControlElementProperty;
public static readonly System.Windows.Automation.AutomationProperty IsControlElementProperty;
 staticval mutable IsControlElementProperty : System.Windows.Automation.AutomationProperty
Public Shared ReadOnly IsControlElementProperty As AutomationProperty 

Field Value

Examples

The following example retrieves the current value of the property. The default value is returned if the element does not provide one.

bool isControl = (bool)
   autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty);
Dim isControl As Boolean = CBool(autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty))

The following example retrieves the current value of the property, but specifies that if the element itself does not provide a value for the property, NotSupported is to be returned instead of a default value.

bool isControl1;
object isControlNoDefault =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty, true);
if (isControlNoDefault == AutomationElement.NotSupported)
{
    // TODO Handle the case where you do not wish to proceed using the default value.
}
else
{
    isControl1 = (bool)isControlNoDefault;
}
Dim isControl1 As Boolean
Dim isControlNoDefault As Object = autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty, True)
If isControlNoDefault Is AutomationElement.NotSupported Then
    ' TODO Handle the case where you do not wish to proceed using the default value.
Else
    isControl1 = CBool(isControlNoDefault)
End If
