Gets the UI Automation Name from the element associated with this DataGridAutomationPeer. Called by GetName.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Automation.Peers
Assembly:  System.Windows.Controls.Data (in System.Windows.Controls.Data.dll)


Protected Overrides Function GetNameCore As String
protected override string GetNameCore()

Return Value

Type: System.String
The UI Automation Name from the associated element.


The default implementation potentially uses the FrameworkElement.Name of the owner DataGrid. Note that this Name is not typically the primary string for UI Automation naming purposes, because it is often not intended to be human readable, and may even be generated by a designer. If generated by the designer, the name may be something like "DataGrid1" and thus duplicate the information of the localized control type name.
