InvokePattern.InvokedEvent Field

Definition

Identifies the event raised when a control is invoked or activated.

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

Field Value

AutomationEvent

Examples

In the following example, the event handler identifies the event as an Invoked event by comparing the EventId in the event arguments with the InvokedEvent identifier field.

// Member variables.
AutomationElement ElementSubscribeButton;
AutomationEventHandler UIAeventHandler;

/// <summary>
/// Register an event handler for InvokedEvent on the specified element.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="elementButton">The automation element.</param>

             elementButton, TreeScope.Element,
             UIAeventHandler = new AutomationEventHandler(OnUIAutomationEvent));
        ElementSubscribeButton = elementButton;
    }
}

    // can disappear before the event is processed.

Remarks

This identifier is used by UI Automation client applications. UI Automation providers should use the equivalent field in InvokePatternIdentifiers.

The InvokedEvent identifier is passed as a parameter to AddAutomationEventHandler.
