The AutomationPeer type exposes the following members.

Methods

Name Description

GetClickablePoint Gets a Point on the object that is associated with the automation peer that responds to a mouse click.
GetClickablePointCore When overridden in a derived class, is called by GetClickablePoint.
GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
GetHelpText Gets text that describes the functionality of the control that is associated with the automation peer.

GetParent Gets the AutomationPeer that is the parent of this AutomationPeer.
GetPattern When overridden in a derived class, gets an object that supports the requested pattern, based on PatternInterface input and the peer's implementation of known patterns.
GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
GetValue Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
HasKeyboardFocus Gets a value that indicates whether the object that is associated with this automation peer currently has keyboard focus.
HasKeyboardFocusCore When overridden in a derived class, is called by HasKeyboardFocus.
InvalidatePeer Triggers recalculation of the main properties of the AutomationPeer and raises the PropertyChanged notification to the automation client if the properties have changed.
IsContentElement Gets a value that indicates whether the object that is associated with this automation peer contains data that is presented to the user.
IsContentElementCore When overridden in a derived class, is called by IsContentElement.
IsControlElement Gets a value that indicates whether the element is understood by the user as interactive or as contributing to the logical structure of the control in the GUI.
IsControlElementCore When overridden in a derived class, is called by IsControlElement.
IsEnabled Gets a value that indicates whether the element associated with this automation peer supports interaction.
IsEnabledCore When overridden in a derived class, is called by IsEnabled.
IsKeyboardFocusable Gets a value that indicates whether the element can accept keyboard focus.
