Property Value

Type: System.Object
An instance of the automation object, or null if no automation support is available.


AutomationObject is a read-only property.

By default, because a DialogPage implementation is a DTE automation object, this (the current object) is returned.

The properties shown by the default display mechanism and persisted by the Visual Studio settings implementation are determined by the properties of the automation object that is returned by this method. If AutomationObject returns an object other than this, the properties of that returned class, and not the properties of the implementing class, are displayed.
