private ValuePattern GetValuePattern(
    AutomationElement targetControl)
{
    ValuePattern valuePattern = null;

    try
    {
        valuePattern =
            targetControl.GetCurrentPattern(
            ValuePattern.Pattern)
            as ValuePattern;
    }

Remarks

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

The pattern identifier is passed to methods such as GetCurrentPattern to retrieve the control pattern of interest from the specified AutomationElement.
