AutomationEventHandler AutomationEventHandler AutomationEventHandler AutomationEventHandler Delegate

Definition

Represents the method implemented by the UI Automation client application to handle an event raised by a UI Automation provider.

public delegate void AutomationEventHandler(System::Object ^ sender, AutomationEventArgs ^ e);
public delegate void AutomationEventHandler(object sender, AutomationEventArgs e);
type AutomationEventHandler = delegate of obj * AutomationEventArgs -> unit
Public Delegate Sub AutomationEventHandler(sender As Object, e As AutomationEventArgs)

Parameters

sender
Object Object Object Object

The object that raised the event.

Inheritance

Examples

The following example shows how to subscribe to and handle an event.

// 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>
public void SubscribeToInvoke(AutomationElement elementButton)
{
    if (elementButton != null)
    {
        Automation.AddAutomationEventHandler(InvokePattern.InvokedEvent,
             elementButton, TreeScope.Element,
             UIAeventHandler = new AutomationEventHandler(OnUIAutomationEvent));
        ElementSubscribeButton = elementButton;
    }
}

/// <summary>
/// AutomationEventHandler delegate.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="src">Object that raised the event.</param>
/// <param name="e">Event arguments.</param>
private void OnUIAutomationEvent(object src, AutomationEventArgs e)
{
    // Make sure the element still exists. Elements such as tooltips
    // can disappear before the event is processed.
    AutomationElement sourceElement;
    try
    {
        sourceElement = src as AutomationElement;
    }
    catch (ElementNotAvailableException)
    {
        return;
    }
    if (e.EventId == InvokePattern.InvokedEvent)
    {
        // TODO Add handling code.
    }
    else
    {
        // TODO Handle any other events that have been subscribed to.
    }
}

private void ShutdownUIA()
{
    if (UIAeventHandler != null)
    {
        Automation.RemoveAutomationEventHandler(InvokePattern.InvokedEvent,

        Exit Sub
    End Try
    If e.EventId Is InvokePattern.InvokedEvent Then
        ' TODO Add handling code.
    Else
    End If
    ' TODO Handle any other events that have been subscribed to.
    Console.WriteLine("Event: " & e.EventId.ProgrammaticName)
End Sub

Private Sub ShutdownUIA()

        Automation.RemoveAutomationEventHandler(InvokePattern.InvokedEvent, ElementSubscribeButton, UIAeventHandler)

End Sub

Remarks

Use an AutomationEventHandler delegate to specify the method that is called by a client to handle UI Automation events.

The AutomationElement represented by sender might not have any cached properties or patterns, depending on whether the application subscribed to this event while a CacheRequest was active.

Extension Methods
