public:
 cli::array <int> ^ GetSupportedViews();
public int[] GetSupportedViews ();
member this.GetSupportedViews : unit -> int[]
Public Function GetSupportedViews () As Integer()

Returns

Int32[]

A collection of integer values that identify the views available for an AutomationElement. The default is an empty integer array.

Examples

In the following example, a collection of integer identifiers is obtained, representing the views available for a control that supports MultipleViewPattern.

Remarks

The collection of view identifiers is identical across instances.

View identifier values can be passed to GetViewName.
