/// <param name="targetControl">
/// The automation element of interest.

///--------------------------------------------------------------------
private GridPattern GetGridPattern(
    AutomationElement targetControl)
{
    GridPattern gridPattern = null;

    try
    {
        gridPattern =
            targetControl.GetCurrentPattern(
            GridPattern.Pattern)
            as GridPattern;
    }
    // Object doesn't support the

The pattern identifier is passed to methods such as GetCurrentPattern to retrieve the control pattern of interest from the specified AutomationElement.
