public:
 property double Minimum { double get(); };
public double Minimum { get; }
member this.Minimum : double
Public ReadOnly Property Minimum As Double

Property Value

The minimum value supported by the UI Automation element or null if the element does not support Minimum. The default value is 0.0.

Examples

In the following example, an AutomationElement that supports the RangeValuePattern control pattern has its value set to the control-specific minimum value.

SetRangeValue(targetControl[0], rangeValuePattern.Current.Minimum);
SetRangeValue(targetControl(0), rangeValuePattern.Current.Minimum)
