IUIAutomationDragPattern::get_CachedDropEffect method

Retrieves a cached localized string that indicates what happens when the user drops this element as part of a drag-and-drop operation.

This property is read-only.

Syntax

HRESULT get_CachedDropEffect(
  BSTR *retVal
);

Parameters

retVal

Return Value

None

Remarks

In the source-only style of Microsoft UI Automation drag-and-drop, no elements implement the DropTarget pattern. To find out what effect dropping the dragged element will have, a client can query the DropEffect property of the dragged element. This property can be a short string such as "move", or a longer one, such as "insert into Main group". The string is always localized.
