Definition

Sets the value associated with the UI Automation element.

public:
 void SetValue(double value);
public void SetValue (double value);
member this.SetValue : double -> unit
Public Sub SetValue (value As Double)

Parameters

value
Double Double Double Double

The new value of the element.

Exceptions

value is less than the minimum or greater than the maximum value of the element.

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)

    }

    RangeValuePattern rangeValuePattern =
        GetRangeValuePattern(targetControl);

    {

Remarks

The actual value set depends on the control implementation. The control might round the requested value up or down. A UI Automation client can examine the Value property to determine the actual updated value. The client can also register for a property-changed event on the property and examine the old and new values returned in the AutomationPropertyChangedEventArgs.
