IUIAutomation2::put_AutoSetFocus method

Specifies whether calls to UI Automation control pattern methods automatically set focus to the target element.

This property is read/write.

Syntax

HRESULT put_AutoSetFocus(
  BOOL autoSetFocus
);

Parameters

autoSetFocus

Return Value

None

Remarks

By default, most UI Automation methods that perform an action on an element, such as IUIAutomationInvokePattern::Invoke and IUIAutomationValuePattern::SetValue, set focus to the element before performing the action. For most applications, setting the focus results in a more consistent user experience. In situations where setting the focus would be disruptive, such as automating a drop-down menu, you can set AutoSetFocus to FALSE to prevent UI Automation methods from setting the focus.
